"Fake News” by NY Times documented

To the Editor of the New York Times

Michael Gordon, your fake news reporter who lied America into invading Iraq, has written a report (“John McCain Becomes Critic in Chief of the Trump Administration," Feb. 20, 2017, NY Times online) about John McCain’s criticism of President Trump, while omitting McCain’s support for the Iraq invasion, which certainly taints McCain’s judgment and his foreign policy credentials. 

McCain even sought a U.S. invasion of Syria on the side of al Qaeda. This damaging fact is also omitted in Gordon’s article. Furthermore, Mr. Gordon quotes only a snippet of Sen. Rand Paul’s critique of McCain, while leaving out Paul’s strongest statement: McCain’s disastrously poor judgment in regard to the Iraq war and Syria.

Your omissions are tantamount to fake news: by suppressing key facts about McCain the Times is building the reputation of Mr. Trump’s chief critic in the Senate. The NY Times has a policy of publishing everything bad about Trump, while you cover up McCain’s catastrophic errors in judgment. Your bias is patent. The fact that it is retailed by an Iraq war faker like Gordon exacerbates the injustice.
