Help save our democracy

Re “Offering no evidence, Trump claims millions voted illegally for Clinton” (Page 1A, Nov. 28): We need help from The Bee and the rest of the media. In covering President-elect Donald Trump, please follow these guidelines:

1. Clearly state that lies are lies; don’t call them “claims.”

2. Describe reality; don’t regurgitate “X said, Y said.”

3. Learn how to deal with a narcissist.

These three pieces of guidance for the media are from James Fallows, The Atlantic’s longtime political observer.

Donald Trump’s lying isn’t news

That President-elect Donald Trump lies constantly is no longer news. If and when he ever speaks the truth about anything will be.
