Reader disappointed in coverage

Letter to the editor


To the editor:

I was not surprised when Friday’s CBS news said former president Donald Trump lied in the debate but failed to mention that President Joe Biden also lied. That is typical of the Trump haters on CBS.

I was disappointed when a front page article in The Commercial Review, “Biden, Trump show disdain for each other,” did the same thing. I could care less if they call out Trump for a lie, but it makes me mad when they throw out their journalistic integrity and cover for their candidate.

It is even more frustrating when the so-called fact checking journalists call the truth lies.

“Trump lied repeatedly during the debate — for example — that Biden had directed criminal prosecutions against him, though there is no evidence to support that assertion.” And yet there is no proof that he didn’t. We do know that the No. 3 man in Biden’s justice department quit so he could go to New York and help Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg “get Trump.” There is also proof the Biden administration was in contact with all the prosecutions. That is more than enough for Trump to form his opinion.

“Trump also made the false claim that Biden was one of many Democrats who favor late-term abortions — even suggesting that some babies might not be allowed to live after they were born.” Biden just last Sunday is on record saying, “I love how Trump now says Biden is for abortion on demand. That’s not true. That’s not what Roe v. Wade said. It said the three trimesters and how it worked.” And on killing babies Trump specifically named the former Virginia governor who is on record taking that position.

“Trump also said that Americans overwhelmingly supported his position on abortions and allowing individual states to set policy. Multiple polls have shown that Americans opposed the overturn of Roe v. Wade.” Polls also show that 80% of Americans oppose third trimester abortions and 60% oppose second trimester abortions.

And someone should tell the 13 servicemen who were killed in Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan that they didn’t die on Biden’s watch because he said so Thursday night.

Biden said, “We brought down the price of prescription drugs, which is a major issue for many people, to $15 for — for an insulin shot, as opposed to $400.” It was actually $35.

He said, “The border patrolmen endorsed me, endorsed my position.”  The National Border Patrol said, “To be clear, we never have and never will endorse Biden.”

And I almost forgot. Biden had so many confused senior moments that even the extreme left-wing New York Times called for him to drop out of the race for president. Strange that these so-called journalists never mentioned that.
