Courtney Hill: Insensitive coverage
June 4, 2013
As a local who lives here, I am so outraged by the choice of the front page story on May 30, especially the vivid headline. While I realize this page is reserved for the biggest news, this was more than in poor taste. There was no consideration to the family, friends and schoolmates this impacted. As a small town, news already travels fast, and as a small town, it is the support and love that needs to be there for those who are suffering great losses or challenges. The Steamboat Today exhibited no part of this support and was in my opinion irresponsible and insensitive in their job. What if this were your family or a friend's family?
