I write this letter to thank Dianna Blazo for pointing out in her letter that you published a letter in the December 25 edition from a Medford resident that clearly violated your letters to the editor rules. In that letter President Trump was described as anti-American, anti-science, a racist, white nationalist, misogynist, xenophobe, liar, incompetent and a servant of Putin and other dictators, all without stated sources as required by your rules.
What I consider to be anti-American is four years of maligning and mocking the president of the United States, as I have witnessed. What happened to respecting the office?
I suggest that in the future you follow your own rules and weed out such hateful letters as the one that I have described.
