I always have appreciated the Inquirer and the writers who work hard researching & writing good articles. My only suggestion would be a more balanced approach to writing about sex abuse scandals which seem to be rampant across many pubic & private organizations, and religious institutions. However, Inquirer only seems to focus on the Catholic Church with front page coverage. Please also write articles on the millions of people the Catholic church assists with life saving care, food & support. Thank you!

Proud of our local paper

I’m so proud of the strides the Inquirer has made over the last year. Continuing their great reporting on important local issues is obviously essential but finally having a more streamlined app to read the news on the go is almost better. Keep up the good work!

Severe political bias

I have been a subscriber to “Inky” for over 50 years. They have always been politically biased toward Democrats both specifically and generally. Their allowance of hatred against President Trump in the Guise of “opinion pieces” in hitting below the line. And, they are getting worse. The organization of the publishing structure as a non-profit has undermined any hint of fairness and the non-profit status should be revoked. They really don’t serve a broad base. Most people I talk with have already shed their subscription and/or have a low opinion of the inquirer as a balanced news provider or as having a fair opinion section.
