Letter to the editor, Oct. 19

I am disappointed in the newspaper printing such false information in a column, even one on the editorial page. The article “Gross negligence in media, part one” was ironic because the article contained false information. Forget about the election for a moment and just analyze what was printed.

It is true there was never a law against using a personal server. But there are many laws preventing having classified information at home (unsecured) either in print or electronic. Yes, laws were broken. Emails were destroyed in spite of the Judicial Watch requesting them under the Freedom of Information Act.

There is no information supporting this server was ever hacked. If anything, it is just the opposite. Claims that there was no shred of evidence any of the emails were classified are false. Even the FBI indicated this. Hillary was touted as the smartest women in the world and she can’t tell if something is classified if it is just marked or if it is of sensitive nature. As Secretary of State she should have known what was classified by its content. I could go on with all of the lies to Congress. So, I found the article a perfect example of Gross negligence in media.
