Why You Always Have to Back to the Original Language of a Text

Why you always have to go back to the original language of any text to make sense of authorship. Imagine if the scholars had been working from a German or French translation of the NYT piece:

Fake News!

The New York Times knows full well there are language software programs that can quickly whittle down who is likely the smear merchant.

Which will be used as a justification by the NYT editorial board for making changes to the letter and adding in key words like "lodestar". All for the purpose of creating a red herring in hopes that their useful idiot readers will think it came from V.P. Pence.

Fake news is what NYT does best.
Such is the depravity of those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The original anonymous source is most likely Michael Moore.
You know, that mentally deranged big fat slob from the nut-job socialist left.

Yeah, that one. :facepalm:
