Adapting to the ever-changing state of journalism, The Defender is dedicated to creative storytelling through the use of multimedia elements including photography, audio, and video.
The Defender is fueled by reader responses and opinions. We encourage our audience to express their views at any time; we believe in the freedom of expression.
We will not publish anonymous letters. Letters will be edited only for grammar, spelling, good taste, and sometimes length.
