I am responding to Denise Murray’s Feb. 11 letter, “Lapdog media comes to leftist masters.” Legitimate media, rightist or leftist, cannot create fake news. They can choose what to leave out, which I call gray truth. Listen to multiple news outlets for more complete coverage.
For example, Democrats supported a wall but don’t support Trump’s wall. They now support more effective and less expensive modern techniques. Both sides want the same thing, border security, but disagree on how to accomplish it.
Rather than discuss and find a solution, America is divided and getting nowhere. Half our illegal immigrants entered the U.S. legally. What would a wall do for expired visas?
Media is not leftist, a decades-old myth. Both rightists and leftists own media. I am done with this lefty/righty view, pushing Americans to hate each other instead of finding solutions. I’m an American and choose what’s best for my country. Right now, that’s helping third-world countries, cheap protection against future terrorism. Terrorism takes root in desperation. We can’t build enough walls to protect us from the world.
There is no Second Amendment without a First. It is the linchpin of our democracy. We have lost many news sources to the ability to pull free information from the internet. Please support those that are “left.”
