Allegations not factual

Recently this paper explained guidelines for accepting letters for publication. One of them was that the content had to be factual. In the Aug. 14 Opinion section, two letters stated that Donald Trump asked the Russians to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails, thereby committing treason. It is a well publicized fact that the emails had already been hacked when Trump made his off the cuff remark. You publish these false allegations and the gullible then run with it spreading it to all who will listen.

You wonder why newspapers are dying? This is just one of the reasons why. Take a thoughtful look into a mirror.
