We’ve all seen the ”This is extremely dangerous to our democracy” video, and this carries a similar weight and is inadvertently that but in text.
At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person.
How could this happen? Does this garner a sense of trust that 21 papers across a number of states could be easily duped, whereby the letters were signed by a different person? Is this really a case of ignorance, foolishness or something more sinister?
