Letter to the editor: Only a test?

Only a test?

Received Feb. 21

Both Jim Key’s February 16 op-ed and Kirk Tingey’s February 21 letter to the editor expressed their strong opinions on what constitutes “fake news.”

Unfortunately, they both tell us that 92 percent of Idahoans voted for Trump. In fact, according to the State of Idaho’s Secretary of State, 59.2 percent of Idahoans voted for Trump in the 2016 General Election, meaning 40.8 percent did not.

This once again demonstrates the need to check the actual facts before giving an opinion. Or perhaps this is just a fact-checking test?
