Re: “Don’t let Romney buy presidency” (letter, 7-20).

I actually laughed when the writer instructed the readers to turn off Fox News, which only has right-wing pundits, and read the newspapers and watch the real news instead because they have “real reporters” who could be trusted.

Newspapers and the popular news media are decidedly liberal and always have been. Maybe they sound so good to the letter writer because he agrees with them.

Additionally, Barack Obama is also a millionaire in his own right with millions of dollars in donations from his party. Mitt Romney is no more buying the presidency than Obama is. But this is a typical diversion from the real topic of the issues, primarily the economy.
