I have been a long-time supporter of the Miami Herald and plan to remain one. I respect your right to recommend any candidate who is in line with your opinion.
At the end of the day, we know that it may or may not amount to much when citizens exercise their right to vote. Nonetheless, many candidates value and seek your recommendation, therefore, it is your responsibility to carefully choose your words.
The Herald should be ashamed of making a comparison between Raquel Regalado’s charges against her opponent to Donald Trump’s disgusting and incendiary, as you wrote, “contention” that “President Obama is the founder of ISIS.”
It was an irresponsible statement from a newspaper that prides itself on aiming for excellence. It was not only inappropriate and out of line with fair journalism, but an insult to Raquel Regalado — and every candidate and reader whether or not they agree with your opinion.
