I was appalled and dismayed to see a yellow paper included in my newspaper this morning saying "We're gonna have to kill him." It bears no name or address of any responsible party.
Only because I read the article about this paper in The Billings Gazette on Saturday did I know that it came from Harvest Church.
This yellow paper doesn't say who is to be killed, doesn't say who advocated killing whom, it doesn't explain anything.
What would a child think upon seeing this paper? There is no explanation. All this paper says is that someone must be killed. End of story.
While I support freedom of speech, this paper doesn't say who wrote it. There is no address, no logo, no signature. No one seems to take responsibility for this paper. Your newspaper doesn't accept letters to the editor without a name, and you insist on an address and telephone number. In my opinion, the U.S. Postal Service was correct in refusing to mail these out. Why did The Billings Gazette allow it to be put in with newspapers without any identifying name?
Did Harvest Church pay for this distribution? Advertisements inserted into The Gazette are identified with names or logos. You need to either revise or develop policies for sending out advertising materials with The Billings Gazette if you want to maintain your reputation of reliability.
