Media: Respect Public's Right to Hear Perot

Regarding the Opinion page article ``Picking on Perot,'' Sept. 28: Ross Perot changed the course of the 1992 election. I didn't vote for him, but I'm grateful to him for defining a few issues.

Now the author writes about how both parties ``pick on Perot.'' The author neglects to mention the media: TV and print media pundits were calling Mr. Perot ``a demagogue'' and an eccentric long before Jimmy Carter was.

Mr. Carter's attack on Perot was unattractive. But I want to be able to hear Carter just as I want to hear and read of whatever Ross Perot has to say. R. R. Larocca, Fresno, Calif.
