Reporter has always been fair

Dear Editor,
I was disturbed by the tone and accusations against Beecher Threatt in last week’s letter to the editor from Susan Watson.
For years, Beecher Threatt has proven to be an invaluable and objective reporter for Ouray County. She provides us with both information and insight into important events and issues we the public need to know about. She does not editorialize and bias her information to fit the whims of individuals.
It appears this is not acceptable to Ms Watson because the information is not what she wants to see. Too bad. That is not Ms Threatt's job. I have reacted to many news reports over the years with letters to the editor and it has never occurred to me to "shoot" the messenger. Focus on the issues. Leave Beecher Threatt alone; she is serving us well.
