Letter to the editor: Why give ‘fake news’ on Obama space?
‘Fake news’ on Obama
It is disturbing that the Tribune-Review makes space on its editorial page for a letter questioning President Obama’s birthplace (“We still need truth on Obama’s birthplace, education,” Aug. 9, TribLIVE). This is a worn-out and overworked conspiracy theory. Even President Trump, who promoted the false theory for a long time, in a news conference on Sept. 16, 2016, acknowledged that Obama was a natural-born citizen of the United States. In typical Trump fashion, he blamed the controversy on Hillary Clinton.
Surely the Trib receives many other letters that don’t repeat outdated and repeatedly disproven “fake news.”
