Letter: ‘Zero coverage’ of graduations at West Point and Annapolis by the Washington Post

Special to WorldTribune.com

To the Editor:

It is truly disgusting that the Washington Post chose not to cover, not one iota, the graduations at Annapolis and West Point on Friday and Saturday. The premiere military institutions in our country—the U.S. Naval Academy and the U.S. Military Academy—received zero coverage.

The 2017 United States Naval Academy Graduation and Commissioning Ceremony at Naval Academy on May 26, 2017. Vice President Mike Pence addressed the Naval Academy graduates.

Of course, recent graduation ceremonies received ample coverage where graduates walked out when Vice President Mike Pence and the Secretary of Education, Betsy Devos, were speaking.

Showing the Vice President addressing the Naval Academy graduates, and the Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, addressing the graduates at West Point, I’m sure was not palatable to the leaders at the Post who couldn’t stomach showing the Trump Administration in a positive light.
