To the Editor:

The Mitchell Daily Republic approved a column written by Jeremy Karll on Sept. 17, 2019, stating, “The Tigers should take a long, hard look.”

It is beyond time for the Mitchell Daily Republic to take a long, hard look at whom they are hiring and what they are allowing to go to print. These college athletes are the same young men who have family, friends, supporters in Mitchell and the surrounding communities.

These same family, friends, and supporters are buying daily papers, subscriptions, and ads that help keep the Mitchell Daily Republic in business. Maybe it is time for the Mitchell community to take a long, hard look at where we get our news.
