Letters to Ed

Thanks for ALL the time and work you do to put news information together each day. Your news helps me to know what's really going on in our wonderful world.



I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I appreciate and enjoy your news page. It contains a wide variety of stories that deal with important issues. Also, unlike many major news organizations, it provides an unfiltered and wide breadth of view points. It is the first thing I read in the morning and throughout the the day. Thanks for providing this unbiased and centered source for critical news of the day.

Best Regards,

Hi Edward,
As 2016 starts, I want to again thank you for your extremely valuable work sorting through all the fluff and posting so many vitally important articles each and every day. It’s the first thing I read every morning before opening up my NYTs or Washington Post or going to any other website.

C. W.


After a long week of listening to Conservative talk shows, it is nice to hear your thoughts of conviction. Your voice usually reels me back a little where I can actually function with next week chores. Thank you for your years of dedication, Ed. And of course, the Backside of American History is equal, if not better, in all aspects, to Paul Harvey's Show.
