Enfermero _Tomas Elias Gonzalez Benitez_||»»// Wright spewing alternative facts

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I write from an independent perspective to underscore a societal phenomenon. Regrettably, as human beings, we are at times less concerned with accuracy and are more intrigued by sensationalism.

Direct reference is made to Andre Russell’s situation as encapsulated in The Wright View, dated March 14, 2017 and Letter of the Day, dated March 17, 2017 by Queen’s Counsel Patrick Foster (Mr Russell’s attorney).

It is readily apparent that Foster’s article sought to set the record straight. His refutation of the plethora of inaccuracies contained in The Wright View remains, to date, unanswered.

Ergo, the disparaging remarks about the athlete compounds.

One would expect at the bare minimum an apology or a withdrawal soonest in time after the realisation that alternative facts were adduced.

Curiously, instead, the response to Foster’s refutation captured in The Wright View column dated March 21, 2017 descended to an all-time low.

Instead of correcting the falsehood and misrepresentations of Mr Russell missing a drug test (not true), Mr Wright sought to personally attack the Queen’s Counsel.

Mr Wright could have responded by acknowledging that he was wrong on the facts and that Mr Russell was only charged for a filing failing.

The most effective resolution to a problem is by identifying or acknowledging it.

Rather, Wright invoked the wrong approach by failing to address the issues and again opted to pursue another sensational course by his failed attempt at ridicule.

Mr Wright, two wrongs don’t make a right.

In life, we see what we want to see. If you search for ugliness, you will find plenty of it. But the opposite is also true. If you look for the extraordinary in the ordinary, you can train yourself to see it. The question is, can you?

 

HONEST MISTAKE  

To me, it’s all a matter of intention.

An honest mistake can be forgiven. Deliberate attempts to spew falsehood and damage a man’s reputation are, quite frankly, unacceptable. Despite its success, Trumpism has no place in fair and responsible column writing. We must not allow ourselves to facilitate and perpetuate what is now popularly termed as the post-truth era of the world.

In the final analysis, the facts are the facts, which speak for themselves and which are also incapable of being manufactured in the eyes of discerning members of the public.

I implore Mr Wright to do the right and honourable thing and correct the inaccuracies in his column and apologise to Mr Russell.
