Don’t be a misinformed newspaper
In the Aug. 30 edition, The Calvert Recorder expressed an editorial opinion that included notes on the Charlottesville, Va., incident saying “President Donald Trump’s response only got worse in the following days.” Being a paying subscriber, I would respectfully request you continue to enlighten other readers and myself. To do this, could you please print the accurate quotes of President Trump’s actual words that impressed you so much? Also, tell us where you believe those words might have deviated from the facts of what happened that day. Or was it that stating the facts might have offended someone? This additional information would help us know how you formulated your opinion.
I used the term “accurate quotes” above, since a fellow newspaper of yours, the New York Times, just apologized five times for accidentally misquoting President Trump in five separate “news” stories about that incident. Oddly enough, the accidental misquotes seemed to guide those “news” stories into alignment with the newspaper’s own overall agenda.
Hopefully, you were not one of those unfortunates who formed their opinion based on these New York Times accidental misquotes, as opposed to what President Trump actually said.
