Editorials Nov 25, It is the time of year when we at least try to have a greater perspective on our world and what we have to be thankful for. But it can be hard in our world today, with the clear evidence of hatred for certain groups — minorities, of course — and our continued inability to treat all people equally.
Saying you were defrauded out of your victory is, after all, admitting that you just plain lost. Even our president wanted to stop the Florida recount as if counting most of the ballots was good enough.
But what happened in Arizona was clear evidence that all votes must be counted — or recounted — because there, what appeared to be a Republican victory in the U. Senate race, turned in favor of the Democrat after a recount.

We are fallible, but we are not fakers. Here, though, are some tips on how to spot fake news, the kind so many Internet junkies love to believe because it fits in with their preconceptions: Consider the source, then investigate the site even though you have to use the Internet to do it.
Read the story and not just the first paragraph. Do a search on the author of the story. Who is this person? Where does he or she really work?
Double check the information reported as fact. But the most important thing to believe is that we — reporters and editors — take great pride in getting it right and feel horrible when we get something wrong.
This is especially important now as the candidate horde gets ready to descend. Trust what we tell you about them, trust what we say they said and believe — believe!
