NIC: Press not biased against college; trustees are

| January 25, 2023 1:00 AM

In the Jan. 21 headline article (“Swayne asks court for injunction”) Mr. Macomber’s decline to comment is very telling. Instead of merely deferring to Laura Rumpler, he continues to take a swipe at The Press, falsely accusing it of “biased negative coverage of NIC.”

Mr. Macomber apparently does not read The Press. If The Press has any bias, it would only be in favor of NIC — a bias which reflects the attitude of the large majority of us Kootenai County residents.

Every editorial has done nothing but try to prop up NIC in spite of the malfeasance of Mr. Macomber and the Three Trustees, who are apparently biased against NIC. If this is not the case, then I ask Mr. Macomber and the Three Trustees: Why are you behaving the way you are? Can you give us a logical reason why you have taken NIC in such a downward direction?

By refusing to answer to us citizens (through media like The Press) you do nothing but show contempt for the large majority of us who are in favor of NIC. By not communicating clearly to us citizens, you leave us no choice but to guess and wildly speculate as to your motives. Please tell us why you are doing this!

And a question to my fellow citizens of Kootenai County: Why are we letting these men do this to us?
