To the editor:

I have always suspected that we only hear and read what the government wants us to. My suspicions were substantiated when I read the article in Thursday’s Journal-World about the Environmental Protection Agency issuing clean air declarations in New York after 9-11 (upon direction from the administration) and being told by the administration not to give tips on how to safely clean up the dusty aftermath. Kudos to the Associated Press reporter who scooped that story. This current administration is totally unbelievable.
