Letter: Inaccurate letter

June 3, 2014 

I am disappointed that the Tri-City Herald has violated its own policy of not printing letters that "contain significant factual errors." Mark Edison's letter on May 28 asserted that President Obama had skipped going to visit the D-Day Monument the last four years and that Edison hoped every person would take note.

The assertion is false and so easily fact checked that it is ridiculous. I hope every person is reminded that you can't believe everything you read. The Herald was sadly short in meeting its obligation.
