LETTER: Rethink characterization of Trump’s travel ban

February 25, 2017

I see that you have succumbed to the overused—by the media—phrase of “predominantly Muslim countries” when reporting on the Trump travel ban [Eight@8, Feb. 6].

You know that Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and a host of other “predominantly Muslim countries” were not included in the ban. You could have said Middle Eastern countries or countries identified by the Obama administration as sponsors of terrorism, but you chose to use this phrase!

Hmm! I think your bias may be showing.
