Be careful with use of literary licence

A recent editorial by Neil Godbout caused me to think about our editor and The Citizen, which previously only spouted vicious comments about the "duly elected" president of the U.S.

I am referring to comments made by the editor in which he used extreme literary licence to call the president the "nincompoop in chief" and the "cinnamon dingbat." It's very obvious that you showed disrespect for the people who elected the person you despise and used vulgar language to show your bias.

In a recent edition of The Citizen, the "Too much Trumping" letter (Dec. 18) at least showed that you were willing to publish someone else's opinion, questioning your reporting as being biased.

Do not become the judge and jury.
