How does " Viewer Opinion" work?

Goal of "Viewer Opinion" on Newschannel10.com:
Our goal is to provide a simple way for our viewers and users to express their opinions and get feedback from our viewers on important community issues. We care about our community and this is one way for us to listen and share information. We anticipate people to differ and to disagree - opinion is subjective and we encourage freedom of speech and the exchange of ideas. But, by using this area, we encourage a respectful exchange of comments. Therefore, we reserve the right to remove any content at any time based on our committee's discretion.

Basics:
> Updates every Wednesday.
> KFDA, KZBZ and KTMO review committee will read all submissions and post 3-5 viewer articles per week.
