Re: “Convention speeches misleading” (TNT, 8-31).

When people running for the most powerful offices in the world tell bald-faced lies to sucker people to vote for them, why did you only mention it on page 13? That should have been on the front page.

I don’t know why newspapers, which have been ridiculed and demeaned by the Republican Party as “lame-stream news” and “liberal press,” continue to coddle the same people who are the most responsible for newspapers losing readership and skilled reporters.

Do you think they will like and promote your papers if they get in control of the government? Dream on!
