Conservative complainers are ones suffering ‘derangement’

Another disgruntled conservative reader complains about the biased reporting by The Daily Herald. Here’s something to ponder; how about presenting the whole truth once in a while, then the right just might get more coverage.

So, the inflation’s Biden’s fault. Yet nearly all economists world-wide point to the pandemic’s effect on supply chains coupled with the sudden rise in demand and prices as the real culprit. It’s well cited that presidents often get both too much credit or blame for the economy.

Yes, there’s been a large increase with attempted migrations over last year. Yet the spike is just a little more than the amount seen in 2019. The main difference; how covid affected people’s traveling. Again misleading.

Our supposed “technological” military equipment claimed left in Afghanistan consisted mostly of rifles, some Humvees and a few helicopters. A gross over-exaggeration.

On point is another letter to the editor concerning past Snohomish Mayor John Kartak’s taking major credit for saving the Carnegie building with a plaque. The writer emphatically asserts Kartak’s story is “simply untrue,” that Kartak actually fought against it until the very end of a lengthy community effort. This speaks for itself, and no small wonder he’s gone.

From the many false covid cures being spread around to propagating the “big lie” about voter fraud leading to Jan. 6, this proud Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer wonders just what else these readers think the rest of us need to read about?
