Glad to see Obama’s media record raised
I was pleasantly surprised at the editorial titled “Don’t forget Obama’s assault on the press” (Sept. 11). While your local and state editorials are factual, fair and unbiased, your national ones have largely been typical media Trump bashing and ignore his accomplishments.
I sincerely hope that the editorial signals a more unbiased national approach, both in the editorials and news articles, focused on results and facts, not so much on perception or the often-tumultuous process to achieve these results.
Your last sentence stated, “We’ve never heard rhetoric like Trump’s and that’s partly because of the legacy of Obama.”
Trump excusers have tried to explain Trump’s lying by blaming Clinton and now his assault on the press by saying “Obama started it.”
Really, you can’t be serious? This, what about the other presidents, argument is just silly. It is not silly because you are trying to compare apples to oranges. You’re trying to compare apples to some alien fruit the likes of which no Earthling has seen before.
The Trump pack will never see reality but that doesn’t mean the majority of Americans have given up on common sense.
