Letter: Use verified news sources
I bought several newspapers to read the editors’ opinions that followed the Boston Globe’s call to defend the importance of the freedom of the press. Two of the three that I read, in my opinion, deserve recognition: the Lake County News-Chronicle (“A free press is our protection from tyranny,” Aug. 16) and the Star Tribune of Minneapolis (“A unified response to attacks on press,” Aug. 16).
All “news” is not the same, but news written by professional journalists is verified for truth. If a written mistake is made, the newspaper prints a correction. As subscribers to any news, it’s up to us to do our homework and determine if the “news” we are reading is verified or not.
If you want the truth, read a newspaper, protect the free press and yourself by being correctly informed.
