Letter to the Editor: This Trump voter’s news diet

Regarding Margaret Sullivan’s Jan. 19 Style column, “Trump’s mouthpiece in chief: Fox News:”

What makes Ms. Sullivan think Trump voters such as me don’t watch or read other news media besides Fox News?

Why does she assume we are not the news literate and “well-informed citizens” that Democrats apparently are?

My morning routine, for example, starts with The Washington Times for the real news and then a cursory walk-through of The Post to see how it spins similar news stories.

I must say, there is some very creative writing.  Ms. Sullivan may want to borrow my red “Make America Great Again” hat so she will fit in for the next eight years.
