I’m a news junkie. I keep track of the news and who says what and how they substantiate their opinion. I get sick and tired of unnamed sources. Unnamed sources do not prove anything. It’s not even hearsay. As I read the Chronicle Opinion page, I see a lot of readers saying Trump lies, but never tell us what specifically they are talking about. Anybody can repeat what someone else said and it means nothing. Your writers would have more credibility if they would specify what they’re talking about. Trump lies, OK, about what? They should cite their source of this information and the evidence. I’m not talking about reports from CNN or MSNBC where professional journalism has nothing to do with what they report. We have had over two years of news articles from the press citing unnamed sources. Two years of telling us what a bad guy Trump is, only to have these unknown sources proven to be full of bologna.
As a writer to the Chronicle, you are entitled to your opinion about Trump, but you are not intitled to your own facts. Be specific about your complaint.
