Headline Not Helpful

Editor, News-Register:

On Wednesday, June 13, The Intelligencer printed a headline on the editorial page, “Obama: Socialist or Fascist?” When I think of the term “fascist,” I remember Mussolini, Hitler, Nazis and the Holocaust. To have the president’s name linked with that term is beyond the pale.

This type of newspaper name calling is what is adding to the harsh campaign rhetoric, and does not help solve the country’s many real problems.
