Letter to editor: Pitts falls short of journalism

Pitts falls short of journalism

 

Re: Leonard Pitts’ column in the Nov. 5 edition of the A-J.

Mr. Pitts was true to form in his nonsensical manner of expressing his opinion. He references some ridiculous fantasy video in which he seems to take great joy in describing administration officials, including “… the big man himself,” being “led away” in handcuffs. Pitts described President Trump as “… a product of fear, intolerance,incoherence and ignorance.”

And yet it is those very things that Pitts is relying on to try to whip up anti-Trump sentiment. Pitts speaks of “tea party mobs.” For the life of me, I can’t recall any tea party mobs.

It is astonishing to think that Mr. Pitts is paid for writing the drivel he puts out. It is astonishing to think that his column appears in newspapers across this nation. Diverse opinions are a good thing, but Pitts is a demagogue. He no doubt thinks he is a journalist, but he falls far short of that esteemed title.
