Letter to the Editor - Zee Ferrufino

Letter addresses regarding Democrat Debate between presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, mediator Jorge Ramos of Univision.

Dear Editor:
I watched the debate last night and was quite disappointed with the tone of some of the questions that were asked by Jorge Ramos. I thought he was rude and disrespectful and even arrogant. It is a fair game to ask questions, but they should be done in a manner that reflects respect without impugning the subject, in this case Secretary Hillary Clinton. I wish the debate would have focused more on important issues such as jobs, the economy, immigration, ISIS, education, health etc.

While I do not dismiss the concerns associated with Benghazi and the email scandal, the questions were reminiscent of the arguments made by right-wing extremists.
Thus, I took the liberty to send Mr. Ramos the following email:

Dear Jorge,
I am writing these few lines to make a comment about the debate last night between the two Democratic candidates. After recognizing your distinguished journalistic career, I reserve my right to criticize you for the inappropriate and aggressive tone of your questions asked of Secretary Hillary Clinton. The arguments focused on questions about Benghazi and the investigation of the emails are misleading. These arguments have been perpetrated by ultra-right wing Republicans. The type and tenor of the questions indicate that you are more than a journalist, you are an activist who impugns the person being interviewed, in this case Hillary Clinton. That arrogance and protagonism that you displayed is not appropriate for a journalist and ironically it reminds me of the nefarious behavior of Donald Trump.

The 25 people who accompanied me to see the Univision debate are in agreement with me. You don’t need to be “rude” to be effective.

Respectfully,
Zee Ferrufino
