I heartily congratulate Ted Rall for his honesty and courage in calling out the current climate for journalists whose views are deemed by corporate management to be outside the mainstream (“Real freedom of the press doesn’t exist in the U.S.” in the Aug. 27 edition).

I would only add that academics in the U.S. have also suffered from such suppression. I know this firsthand. I have tried throughout my career to be objective and neutral in my analysis. My goal is to give the best analysis and advice that I can — without a political slant toward any country, including the U.S.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
