The repetition of libelous falsehoods concerning thrown chairs at the Nevada Democratic state convention is conduct unbecoming a serious newspaper ("Clinton needs to back off trying to muscle Sanders out," May 23).
There were no chairs thrown at the convention in Nevada. The Sun has had more than enough time to learn the facts from other media that took the trouble to investigate what actually happened. It is small wonder Sen. Bernie Sanders' supporters are angry when the media have consistently misrepresented them and him.
Some in the media say Mr. Sanders should stop criticizing Hillary Clinton or drop out of the contest. These people do not seem to understand how elections work.
Approximately 19 percent of the Democratic pledged delegates have not yet been chosen. The voters in the nine jurisdictions represented by those delegates have not had an opportunity to make their wishes known.
No candidate's convenience or sense of entitlement — and no editor's preference — takes precedence over those voters' right have their votes counted. That means they must be able to hear what the candidates have to say so they can choose the one who seems most likely to offer what they want.
To suggest that a candidate should stop acting like a candidate before everyone has had a chance to make their own decision is disgraceful and anti-democratic.
