Reviewing a Reviewer

The publication of Bill Steigerwald's article ("Moralistic Tone to ABC's 'Drugs: Why This Plague?' " July 11) under the label television review is poor journalism and is an insult to your readers. It is not a review at all. In no way does it comment on either the quality of the production nor the creative aspects of the program, but rather Mr. Steigerwald has used the column to expound his personal views on the legalization and decriminalization of illicit drugs.

Television reviews should be reviews of the program and not a platform to sell the public poison pills.
