Trump-bashing media continues

As a frequent letter to the editor writer, I have had to reword certain letters because the editor said they have to be factual and cannot include things not proved. It’s too bad you don’t apply the same standards to the “news” or letters bashing President Trump. We keep seeing letters how “Trump’s policy of separating parents and children at the border” is horrible while the editor ignores the fact that this is a law initiated in the Clinton Presidency (Reno v. Flores consent decree from 1997) and thus can’t be change by Trump. He actually tried with an executive order, but it was deemed unconstitutional.

Is there any wonder we look at the media as mostly fake news? This kind of one-sided, for decades now, reporting is one reason why many of us voted for Trump! The days of the media telling us only what they want us to know or even outright lying to us are over. Rush Limbaugh actually changed that, and that’s why he is so hated as well.

The media doesn’t want to give up their power easily so we have to do our part in forcing them to. Red Wave in 2018 and vote Trump in 2020. MAGA!
