Re: “Republicans attack Mills administration for anti-racism lesson plan,” (front page, Sept. 23):

The 12th paragraph notes that the video had been viewed 300 times in 28 months. Paragraph 16 notes that nobody onscreen discussed any of the content mentioned in the article.

Nothing actually happened here.

Breitbart scraped some content nobody was reading and hurled it into the echo chamber. For some reason, the Portland Press Herald pretended it was newsworthy.

The Morning Sentinel is valuable to me when it features sourced journalism about my community. When hyperbolic non-issues run above the fold on A1, the paper becomes as useless as the rest of the internet, where opinions outweigh both knowledge and wisdom.
