According to PAW, on Alumni Day Charlie Gibson ’65 apparently attacked President Trump for Trump’s tweets criticizing some in the press as being inaccurate (Princetonians, March 21). Not mentioned in the article — and presumably not mentioned by Mr. Gibson — was the Obama administration’s action in labeling James Rosen of Fox News as a “criminal co-conspirator” in a 2013 investigation into documents leaked to the media. That omission amounts to bad reporting and possibly to fake news. It is abundantly clear that this was a far greater threat to freedom of the press than verbal debating, even if rude.
Over the years, conservatives have rightly complained about the left-wing slant of much of the news. I regret to say that I detect some of this in PAW.
