Journalists have always been and always will be dishonest

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your editorial on fake news. I compliment you on never editorializing.

You have totally missed the issue that President Trump continues to try to make you and others understand. I am 75 years old and have always, every day of my life, read and listened to slanted and fake news by your fellow journalists.

Journalism and/or journalists have always been, and I fear, forever will be, known as dishonest becaause, after all is said and done, , it is proven over and over again that what was said was not the facts but an exaggeration and/or very biased opinion of the twisted truth to suit their own agenda.

I don't know why they can't keep their opinions to themselves and present the news in an unbiased way.

I thought that was what journalism school taught their students. Why can't simple facts be state without an opinion attached to them.

To quote you, "Honest journalism is a vital part of any decent society" is something I agree with. Could we please just see that?

We are intelligent enough to form our own opinions after heaaring just all true facts. The press is what has been the dangerous issue. People are now finally willing to stand up to the truth. because we're so very tired of not hearing it in an unbiased way.
