To the Editor: Newspapers need to be fair in crime coverage
By: Tony Sheda, Pine Journal
To the Editor:
I was publically rebuked in last week’s letter, “Newspaper was ‘doing its job.’” The letter writer and I have no quarrel about a newspaper publishing an article about someone on probation. What I have a problem with is singling out one person. There are hundreds of sex offenders, drug dealers, murderers, etc., on probation, so write about all on probation.
This being America, everyone should be treated the same, especially by the supposedly fair media. All I’m saying is fairness should be the norm.
