‘Factual inaccuracies’

By From page A5 | November 15, 2013


It is the job of newspapers to inform readers of factual information, not promote lies about climate change. Please join with the Los Angeles Times in implementing a formal policy of refusing to publish any letters to the editor or other content that denies climate change.

Earlier this month, the L.A. Times letters editor wrote: “Simply put, I do my best to keep errors of fact off the letters page; when one does run, a correction is published. Saying ‘there’s no sign humans have caused climate change’ is not stating an opinion, it’s asserting a factual inaccuracy.” (CREDO)

It would be great if you could do this for the other “factual inaccuracies” you so readily publish in your paper to fuel your tea party agenda.
