Letter to the editor... What is news?

Dear Editor: Josh Briggs’ column in Sunday’s paper was obviously prompted by protests over Friday’s headline story. And while it may be news, to have it the lead story in prominent font makes the News look like the National Inquirer. The Citizen did a tasteful low key story on the subject, while yours looked like sensationalism. And while most 6-year-olds do not read the paper, children just a few years older do and this one would be especially difficult to miss the way it was emblazoned across the top of the first page. Had the second headline been omitted, it would not have attracted near as much attention from a child. It tells me how the staff ranks the relevancy of the news.
