Despite the readers’ objections, the editor of The Plain Dealer in Cleveland informed them that critical coverage of Donald Trump was essential.
“In this case, the north star is the truth,” Chris Quinn stated in a Saturday letter to the editor. “We adhere to the truth, notwithstanding the potential offense it may cause certain individuals who rely on our information.”
He continued, “The truth is that Donald Trump undermined confidence in our elections in an attempt to retain the presidency.” “His intention in inciting an uprising was to depose our government so he could maintain his own authority.” No president has performed worse in our history. This is objective in nature. Everyone observed it.”

Quinn conveyed his condolences to Trump supporters who were dissatisfied with the non-acknowledgment of their perception of the candidate by their local news outlet. However, that will not halt the coverage.
“The facts regarding Trump are indisputable; as journalists, we have no choice but to acknowledge them, regardless of how unpopular that may be with some of our audience,” he composed. “The facts do not have two sides.” Those who contend that the earth is flat are denied space on our platforms. “Forget it if that causes them offense.”
Quinn stated that the “mindset” and “success” of President Joe Biden were debatable, but accused some readers of “false equivalency” by comparing him to Trump.
The editor wrote, “Biden has not even come close to committing the egregious, anti-American acts that Trump has.”

Quinn recognized the editorial precariousness that accompanied the composition of the letter. He wrote, “I will offend some thoughtful, decent individuals regardless of how I present it.”
In 2020, Biden received 66.4% of the vote and won 42 of 59 communities in Cuyahoga County, of which the county seat is Cleveland. However, Trump carried Ohio by an overwhelming margin overall.
As of March polling, the former president held a commanding advantage over Biden in the state ahead of their anticipated rematch in November.
