NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
There is a big difference in understanding what is true and what is outright false.
Being objective is verifiable by looking up provided facts. Being subjective lacks certainty and is a view tainted by the writer. It reflects the writer’s view of reality. Essentially, they cannot be considered true as they cannot be verified using concrete facts and figures.
For example, writers Philip Granato (June 6), Joseph Waltenbaugh (April 4), Russ Hall (April 25) and Patty Jenkins (Feb. 11) write subjectively. Their letters are based on nothing but knee-jerk emotion. They lack citation. It makes them perceived as radical malcontents seeking favor based on fear, not facts. Facts consistently discredit emotions. Perhaps that’s why they are omitted.
For example, where are the death panels, WMDs and that certain Kenyan birth certificate? Martin Luther King once said, “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
America understood it a long time ago. They hate everything about the president. Their subjective rants are so thinly veiled that a blind person can see them a mile away. Until the Tea Partiers write objectively, no one can and will take them seriously.
