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.”
