Regarding the Glendale News-Press Nov. 19 editorial titled, “The smart move is to choose a new battle,” I ask, why hasn't there been an open and televised debate on the merits of the smart meters?
The News-Press editorial dismissed the concern on privacy and security, but only focused on the health issues, equating anti-smart-meter activists with people who claim certain vaccines cause autism in children.
“Decades later,” the editorial states, “misinformation continues to be spread; nothing has changed.”
What do vaccines and autism have to do with smart meters? This is a non-sequitur. The editorial board of the News-Press has not addressed the legitimate concerns of the anti-smart-meter group.
