As­so­ci­ated Press shows its anti-Trump bias

The Southern Berks News - - LOCAL NEWS - —Earl Su­chome­lly Ex­eter

I was dis­ap­pointed when I saw the Nov. 11 head­line in The Mer­cury, “Some op­pose Trump visit.” That was the morn­ing af­ter the shoot­ing in Pitts­burgh. That mes­sage per­pet­u­ates the di­vide in this coun­try to­day.

Why not “Pres­i­dent to of­fer con­do­lences” as a head­line? Why al­ways print the AP mes­sage of de­mean­ing our pres­i­dent? I’ve lived through the “60s” and they were very di­vi­sive. I thought we were fin­ished with that kind of junk. I truly be­lieve that if the me­dia would have given the pres­i­dent some re­spect from the be­gin­ning, he wouldn’t be us­ing Twit­ter to talk to the peo­ple. Our coun­try needs to go back to the way it was, when peo­ple re­spected the opin­ion of oth­ers. The abusers must be taken to task ... that is on both sides. It used to be “My Coun­try Amer­ica,” now it’s “Which side are you on?”
