Why no GOP emails?
I write to reflect on and object to numerous letters to the editor concerning the desire of many readers to encourage The Baltimore Sun to give greater coverage and credence to WikiLeaks revelations (“WikiLeaks should be read,” Oct. 26).
A few points should be considered by your readership prior to urging greater reliance and weight to these so called “revelations.” First, there is the fundamental unfairness and obvious bias of these communications. Clearly, they are selectively being obtained and released by individuals and organizations favoring one party, the Republicans.
Two other questions clearly emerge. The Russians, who are obviously trying to influence our elections by hacking email accounts and supplying the information to WikiLeaks, have obviously interjected themselves where they do not belong — in our election.
Furthermore, the fact that this is clearly the case leads to the question of whether this information has been tampered with by the Russians to further encourage their aims. Finally, common decency and fairness would dictate that Republican e-mails must be obtained and released to the public to “even the playing field.” Evidence of any effort to do so is conspicuously absent from the discussion.
Perhaps those bombarding The Sun and others should consider the above before pouring their vitriol on these responsible media platforms.
