Divest yourself of anti-Trump bias

Published:Tuesday | August 21, 2018 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I read with a great deal of disappointment Mark Wignall's Sunday Gleaner column 'The loathsome Donald Trump' (August 19, 2018). Wignall's topic alone suggests a strong bias as far as the current president of the United States is concerned.

I have seen this bias in the mainstream media, so it was with a great deal of anticipation that I read the article of a man whom I believe to be one of the strongest investigative journalists in Jamaica.

1. After more than a year of investigation into alleged Russian collusion, not one shred of evidence has been produced, so I don't know what 'mounting evidence' he is referring to.

2. I am not sure if Mr Trump referred to Omarosa as a lowlife, but the fact is that it was Mr Trump who gave her the opportunity to have reached that far. Has Wignall looked at the character of Omarosa?

Whatever our political biases, let us be impartial and not slant facts to influence those who do not have the time to do the research. They depend on you, as a top-notch journalist, to do that.
