To the editor: Trump supporters ignore, or willingly accept, or are unaware of the many lies Trump tells. Most of his supporters watch Fox News and never hear anything negative about this president. The purpose of a free press is to check and balance all branches of government, which includes the president, and that does not happen with Fox News. Fox’s only voice of reason is Sheppard Smith, who points out Trump’s wrong views on issues like caravans.
All news sources critical of Trump are called out by him as fake news because, as he has said, he does not want his followers to know the truth. When the stances on issues concerning the environment, health care, women’s rights, guns, education, taxes, our allies and enemies, our intelligence agencies, immigration and Trump and his finances are debated, the truth is exposed.
Overwhelmingly science believes that we have an effect on global warming. Most people believe that health care is a right for everyone. Women should have control over their own bodies. Some gun laws make sense. Public education is a necessity. Tax breaks should not benefit the rich. Trump should support our allies and stop defending our enemies. Trump should stand behind intelligence agencies. We should support immigration laws. We should know Trump’s finances, including his tax returns.
When CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other “fake news’ media look at these issues, they have a “liberal bias” because they apply checks and balances infused with the truth and common sense.
