Upon reading the Sun Journal Dec. 27, I was unbelievably disgusted with the newspaper. The editorial about driving records showed incredibly insensitive timing to the family and friends of those involved in the recent accident. As I read the editorial further, I was appalled to realize that the editorial not only indirectly referred to the accident, but specifically mentioned it.
The Sun Journal not only carried a front-page story regarding the accident with relatively nothing new to report, but also included two pictures of the vehicles involved, that I consider in poor taste and inexcusable.
Those who knew the accident victims, or the victims’ families, are bound to find the coverage disturbing, at the very least.
I wonder what the interviewed counselors would say regarding the Sun Journal’s choice of front page images and editorial timing.
