Letter: Evidence of purposely misleading reporting

“Hate sourced from the top,” an editorial from the Boundary Creek Times in the Nov. 2 Shuswap Market News, is exactly what President Trump has been talking about with respect to most of the mainstream media being guilty of purposely false, misleading and inaccurate reporting.

In the first half, the writer properly speaks about the terrible massacre in Pittsburgh. But then it goes on, deliberately omitting any reference to these comments from the president on the shooting:

“All of America is mourning over the mass murder of Jewish Americans at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. We pray for those who perished and their loved ones, and our hearts go out to the brave police officers who sustained serious injuries.”

“… This evil anti-semitic attack is an assault on humanity. It will take all of us working together to extract the poison of anti-semitism from our world. We must unite to conquer hate.”

By omitting the president’s fitting response to this horrific crime, it could not be more obvious that this editorial writer would have a reader believe that all Trump had to say about it was that the media is “the enemy of the people.”

The “anger and fear [being] stoked almost daily” is modus operandi for the Left and most visibly attributable to media outlets like CNN and MSNBC.

Not President Trump.
