Letter to the editor: Press must deal in more facts

No other president has had to deal with a defeated president who not only tried to reverse the election, but has promoted the “Big Lie.” The 2020 elections were fair and honestly held, yet the opposite is believed by large numbers of our citizens because they did not like the outcome.

President Biden, and our democracy, have been undermined and opposed by a large percentage of the public, yet he has achieved much for the American people, not just for the already rich and powerful. Even the liberal media talks of his “failures” and the Democrats’ inability to get things done despite obstruction at every turn, including from two in his own party. The media should be continuously reporting the truth and the threats to our democracy. Biden’s calmness is much appreciated by this citizen, and to be applauded. He is trying very hard to re-stabilize our nation with great courage. He deserves our support and gratitude.

Why does the press seem to believe that its readers only want negative news and opinions? If our democracy is to survive, the press must change their reporting from solely negative to positive when it is due. It must be reported with more fact and less opinion. We all have our opinions, what we need is facts.
