Dear 'New Times' readers: for the record



The above letter to the editor references a letter that was published in New Times on Aug. 11 by Phyllis Stout from Arroyo Grande (“Code Pink is an embarrassment”). There were two noticeable changes made to the letter: The words “I believe” were added to a sentence that continues “Code Pink is a hate group … .” An additional sentence was also removed from the letter. 

Both of those changes were made because the statements were factually inaccurate, and New Times wanted to preserve the intent behind the letter and opinion of the letter writer, while still being able to print it. Stout’s opinions about Code Pink and 35th District Assembly candidate Dawn Ortiz-Legg are clear, as is evidenced by two letters to the editor published in the paper this week. If New Times really were pushing an agenda, the letter would never have seen the light of day. 

New Times reserves the right to edit letters to the editor for clarity, accuracy, and grammar, spelling, etc. We love your opinions, so keep reading and keep writing letters the editor!
