Nothing funny about the big lie

I am writing to express my frustration over the cartoon by Rivers published Sunday, Sept. 18, in the Letters to the Editor section. The Dispatch failed in its code of journalistic ethics in publishing a cartoon that deliberately spreads mis/disinformation.

The cartoon hints that President Biden is a corrupt mobster and that he is in charge of the FBI. Both allegations are false and although people disagree vehemently about his success as a president, these suggestions are untrue.

Rivers - No Questioning or Else

Note that I am not suggesting the editors censor political opinions with which I don’t agree. Far from it. What I do object to is that this cartoon caters to all kinds of conspiracy theories by suggesting the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and the questions about Jan. 6 are a “witch hunt.”
