Letter full of innuendo, half-truth and lies

This letter is in response to Norm Benson’s vitriolic and ignorant letter published in the Sky-Hi Daily News on Oct. 8.

The words “vitriolic and ignorant” may seem strong to some of your readers. I feel that his unabashed, bitter attack on Senator Obama was extremely vitriolic. He also is either ignorant of the facts or chooses to ignore them.

I do not have time to rebut all of the statements which Mr. Benson made. However, I am concerned that there are citizens out there who will believe the innuendos, half-truths and outright lies which Mr. Benson repeated in his letter.

There are numerous places where one can check statements such as “He counts William Ayers (1970s Weather Underground terrorist) as a friend.” Even Fox News has stated that this is not true. One place to check these wild statements is online at FactCheck.org. I suggest that Mr. Benson check his facts before writing an open letter to the editor. I also urge those of you who read Mr. Benson’s letter and might have been confused by some of his comments to also check the facts.
