The Sun's recent editorial about the tea party's fortunes helps everyone understand why dinosaur media outlets are circling the drain toward oblivion ( "Weakened tea," May 21). In the view of some, every political issue fits into file folders - Fox News Channel or MSNBC, the Wall Street Journal or the New York Times, the tea party or the GOP establishment. The Sun derides me for filling in on conservative talk radio. But it is not conservative talk radio or Fox News that declared bankruptcy or sees its audience decline year after year.

Apparently, The Sun's editors have a tough time choosing between protecting a political party or advocating common sense for the care of citizens and veterans alike. Dan Bongino's letter ( "Bongino: Sun's left-wing views show why print media are becoming irrelevant," May 31) describing the Sun as "circling the drain" is right on target. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki's resignation was plastered all over - page 9? Bill Krehnbrink - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

FORGET Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. and House Speaker Michael E. Busch. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. says his biggest nemeses these days are the area's two largest daily newspapers. Ehrlich has incorporated his disdain for The Sun and the Washington Post into his stump speeches, telling audiences that the print media are treating him unfairly and have it out for his administration. During an address last week to students at Towson University, Ehrlich called The Sun and Post "two very hostile newspapers."

Dan Bongino suggests that newspapers need to change to make money ( "Bongino: Sun's left-wing views show why print media are becoming irrelevant," May 31). He's right, yellow journalism makes money. But he's wrong, yellow journalism is not new. In 1898 William Randolph Hearst, owner of the New York Journal used yellow journalism to get America involved in a war with Spain. In the Spanish-American War, people died and Mr. Hearst made lots of money. Was it worth it? In 2014, the Koch brothers use the tea party and Fox News in the same manner.

Print media holds a special place in our hearts as it chronicles the important social and political trends in our lives ("So young, so pretty: death of a magazine," Sept. 21). The Urbanite was a vibrant and well-conceived print, marketing and social media platform for Baltimore's continuing urban renewal. We need to pause and wonder why we were unable as a community to support this beautiful addition to the print media landscape. Kudos to the Urbanite led by Tracy Ward and her team for taking a bold step in the right direction.

Are you still excited about the first week of "Monday Night Football" even though it has moved to cable? We don't have cable, and my wife was so pleased to learn that "Monday Night Football" will be on ESPN. I haven't told her about "Sunday Night Football" yet! Networks, like the print media, are dinosaurs from a different age; channel numbers are immaterial. The genius was keeping that theme. Michael S. Herman Sr. NEXT QUESTION What was the most impressive thing about the Ravens' opening victory?

ONE OF THE THINGS I remember most about my recent two-month trip to Nepal, the home of Mount Everest, is the slogan, "Horn Please," that's scrawled on the back of many trucks and buses in Kathmandu, the capital city. Everyone graciously accepts the invitation to honk as small cars, taxis and mopeds pollute the air of this ancient and fascinating city of Hindu and Buddhist culture. The rushing traffic is indicative of the vibrancy in this 7-year-old constitutional monarchy.In the United States, the horn usually brings a scowl of surprise and anger accompanied by a fist-shake or a rude gesture.

Somewhere along the line, many Americans relegated the media to a notch on the morality scale only slightly above that of child molesters. Judging by the way some media have covered the murder of Ennis Cosby, we deserve it.Mind you, we in the media try to govern ourselves, but often we "aim for the palace and get drowned in the sewer." That quote comes from that eminent author, sage, wit and philosopher Mark Twain, who was himself a journalist at one time.Within days of the shooting of Ennis Cosby, his father, entertainer Bill Cosby, had to go public and demand that the media stop hounding the family and let them grieve privately.

GM head blames media for woesConsumer criticism spurred by a hostile media has crippled the U.S. auto market and obscured recent progress at General Motors Corp., Chairman Robert Stempel said in a magazine interview."I haven't seen anything, anywhere -- TV, print media -- that suggests anything done in the U.S. is good," Mr. Stempel told Time magazine in the Jan. 27 issue, which hits newsstands today."Certainly the automakers haven't had good press on quality, gas mileage, transmission smoothness."

"I enjoy writing and editing, but I'm no good at sales."
