The cover story ``News Wars,'' Feb. 14, was helpful and informative. The author managed to give television viewers an intelligent grasp of the situation faced by news producers. This enables us to be more active participants in shaping the character of news we receive in our homes. We must let newscasters know what is of interest to us. Today we have a large choice of news sources, and will select those compatible with our tastes.
Please keep up the inside reports on television. Television has become such an influential factor in modern society. Nancy Dyson Shipp, Cambridge, Mass.
