Re: “Walters: Panel Ices Wind Rules Until October

"Pretty lousy reporting" says Annette Smith, "This isn't real journalism" opines VtPolicyAnalyst. Walters is a POLITICAL COLUMNIST, PEOPLE!!! It says so right under his photo! You can disagree with his opinion (yes, that's what columnist's have, opinions). He's not simply reporting events, that's what....... wait for it...... reporters do. He's listening to people from all sides of an issue, then forming an opinion and writing that opinion, IN HIS POLITICAL COLUMN, where opinions are written. Is he biased? Of course, we all are. Annette Smith's bias is that she ignores the fact that there aren't any scientific studies that show physical harm to people from large-scale wind, but instead she relies on anecdotes and hearsay, and reports them as fact. Guess what? She's entitled to her opinion, even though it's based on those anecdotes and hearsay. So, the lesson here is, reporters report, columnists opine, and Annette Smith reports her opinion as fact.

Re: “Scott’s Push for Wind Moratorium Faces Tough Odds

Nasty personal attacks on legislators working for us don't help your cause. I have Vermont friends and family who have good paying jobs working in the wind power field, and none of them drive snow plows for out of state technicians or clean up oil spills.
