To the editor: It just boggles the mind that something we would scold our children about (cheating) would be done by an adult who got paid to lecture us on CNN. With the revelation that interim Democratic Party Chairwoman Donna Brazile fed debate questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign, we know for certain that politicians are enabled by the media. (“Using political flacks as news analysts erodes faith in journalism. TV directors: Build that wall!” editorial, Nov. 2)

It is so disheartening and explains the appeal of Donald Trump. Everyone is so fed up with the Washington ways.

I wonder how long it will be before Brazile is back on the Sunday morning talk shows as if this never happened. In the insider world of Washington, cheating won’t matter because we know they take care of their own.

And people say Trump is shameless.

To the editor: The Times is correct in making the distinction between “commentators” and “committed partisans” on TV news networks. These partisans do little to enhance our understanding of the presidential race.

The TV networks can hardly be called “objective” simply because they pit one group of attack dogs against another on their news shows.

To the editor: Your editorial is supposed to be a criticism of Brazile and CNN, and yet you manage to mangle the story (once again) as another criticism of Trump. Brazile and Trump have nothing in common.

Your continuous obsessive attacks on Trump have persuaded me that he is correct when he screams that the media are manipulating the election. Incredibly, when you summarize the number of the printable letters, you struggle to find one that speaks favorably of him.
