In the name of journalism worthy of our great nation, I implore you to stop printing and broadcasting news of the President Elect's "tweets" on his Twitter account.
His tweets have become a terrible distraction, diverting us from the real news of his transition and future presidency. My guess is that this is his strategy. My fear is that he will use tweets instead of press conferences and official statements, thus avoiding questions from the Fourth Estate. This should undoubtedly be your concern as well. Up to now I have found great humor and pathos in this form of communication from him, but I realize that the entertainment value is hollow and we must now focus on the real news at hand.
Furthermore, his tweets are stirring up frenzied emotions, which is the last thing our country needs now. It is the media's job to hold public officials' feet to the fire, especially in times like these. The citizenry require sober analysis of what is going on with our nation's highest office and administration. Not tabloid news. By all means, cover the news about his appointments. Investigate his every move, vigorously. But please, no more tweet drama.
So, please, do your job. Stop doing his job for him. Our nation is at stake.
Short and sweet, wouldn't you say? Please borrow it and send to the news outlets that you pay attention to.
