Thank you, Neal Gabler for a sane, reasoned analysis of the difference between fair and so-called balanced journalism ("Moore's Ax Falls on a Derelict Media Too," Commentary, July 7). I believe there is a right-wing plot to take over so-called reporting of "news," in particular the television and radio networks and outlets, from which much of our population gets its information; witness the screaming heads of Fox News and the suppression of a program such as Ted Koppel's "Nightline" for reading the names of our children killed in Iraq.

Reading "Apathy keeps me pretty busy" by Peter Mehlman (Opinion, July 11) had me laughing after the first paragraph and kept me laughing all the way through. It was refreshing to read a deliberately humorous article in the midst of all the weighty problems of the world. It made my day. Lois Vackar Huntington Beach Not having an opinion is an opinion.

I think the best is yet to come in my true humble opinion."

Re "Objectivity Is Highly Overrated," Commentary, April 24: Victor Navasky contradicts the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who said we are all entitled to our opinions, but not our own facts. Navasky and historian Christopher Lasch to the contrary, information is both the foundation and byproduct of debate. Debate must start from valid facts to serve a public purpose. Debate can then focus further search for fact. Without grounding in fact, opinion is simply noise that confuses the marketplace of ideas.

Re "Parenthood optional," Opinion, Aug. 6 I don't thank Meghan Daum for choosing not to have children; I respect her, but I don't thank her. What she's chosen to do is to deprive our society of those who would have inherited her sensibilities and intellect.
