Opinions, not facts

October 30, 2018

I'm writing in regard to a letter I read on Downtown newsmagazine’s website called "The facts on Slotkin" (October Incoming/Downtown).


Most of the "facts" are inaccurate, speculative, and one-sided, and I'm grateful that the publisher's note addresses this to some extent. I think it would be appropriate to ask the author to change the title of the letter or have the editor clarify that these are opinions and not facts at the beginning of the article.


Article titles carry a lot of weight, and I'm sure that you appreciate this. I think that making this change will help quell misinformation and make it clear to readers that this is the opinion of one person.
