Letter: Colin Powell story headline unbalanced

The Sept. 15 edition of Newsday clearly demonstrated bias. The news article “In leaked email, Powell called a Trump ‘disgrace,’” written by The Associated Press, focused on Colin Powell’s emails disparaging Donald Trump. However, Powell criticized both Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Powell said about Clinton, “Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris.” Newsday could have featured that in its headline, but the paper chose to emphasize Trump! Whatever happened to objective and fair reporting?
