reputable newspaper, sadly the Chicago Tribune.
The Chicago Tribune article titled, Trump succeeds at preserving his ignorance, is one more step down in class from a once great reputable news source. The writer displays himself to be a political elitist using ad hominem logic to accuse the elected President of the USA, of being ignorant. Does that statement imply everyone who supports President Trump were ignoramuses for voting for Trump?
Shades of elitist Hillary Clinton accusing Trump supporters as being “a basket of deplorables” in my opinion.
In previous posts I complained about another rag news commentator of being a troublemaker and even a sinner by writing another ad hominem article about the Trump marriage and religion, which in my opinion, a marriage is no business of anyone except the marriage partners and perhaps their family.
What happened to journalism ideals of providing readers with the information they need to be free and self-governing? How does implying the President of the USA is ignorant in a rag news column provide any news of value to provide readers with information to be free and self-governing?
No wonder the latest poll of voters that 77 percent believe news in the USA is fake news
In a debate being judged on merits of logic, anyone who used an ad hominem would lose points because a judge would discern the debater had nothing worth while to state in the debate when he or she resorts to a personal attack on their opponent.
The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. (Proverb 12:18)
In My Opinion
When a major newspaper allows columnists to make personal attacks on the President of the USA. They are neither wise or healing for our Nation.
All I hear from Trump haters is personal opinions and no remedies what they would do to solve problems Trump confronts from our nation issues and all over the world.
And in shades of above Chicago Tribune Truman Dewey headline, the writer does not even check his own statements that Trump is wrong about trade balances with Canada according to this Bloomberg article. HERE
Mark Twain was right about the Chicago Tribune today when he said this that now applies to certain Chicago Tribune columnists.
“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.”
Journalism or rag elitist news reporting?
