Letter to Editor 03

The front page feature article in the Gazette’s Thursday, Aug. 8, 2019, edition serves as a snapshot of the “Hate Trump Media.”

The headline purports the idea that the article will feature President Trump’s visits to El Paso and Dayton to console the families who lost loved ones in the mass shootings and to laud the bravery and professionalism of first responders.

The first three paragraphs of the article cover this. The remaining 15 paragraphs cover the extremists who blame the president for the killings, rehashing old news to pad this section.

It is abundantly clear that the concept of a free and fair press has ceased to exist in America. History books in the future will mark 2016 as the year that American media chose to abandon its constitutional purpose and reinvent themselves as biased political rags.
