Rebecca Walker: "It is sickening to hear so-called journalists whine and cry because someone puts them in their place."

John Detherage: "It appears that you guys can dish it out, but can't take it!"

Jerry Kays: "I was cheering Governor Bevin for speaking up when he had enough. I hope he keeps doing it!"

Rachel Morgan: "Sounds like spoiled brats that had someone speak the truth!"

Mary D. Godfrey: "We do not need a reporters opinion. What we need is for a reporter to report the facts. How hard is that?"

Marianne Sanders French: "Reporters can no longer be considered unbiased reporters of facts."

Vicki Pass emailed: "Instead of taking this golden opportunity you have to call out reporters you took up for them. You are either sticking your head in the sand or you're part of the problem or both."

Bryan Johnson emailed: "Reporters have lost the ability to JUST report the facts and allow the viewer to form their own opinion."

Mark Lee emailed: "The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth is just as much a cornerstone of democracy as the first amendment."

Christiana Belcher took another view, citing more than 100 jailed journalists in Turkey for doing their job: "I am thankful to live where we practice freedom of speech."

And regarding our Cats and Cards baseball editorial, Barbara Sue Hall pointed out that UK had the Southeastern Conference baseball coach of the year, pitcher of the year, and scholar-athlete of the year.
