Outrage aplenty


Ah, there they are! I specifically went online to The Spokesman-Review’s website and found what I was looking for. Others in the community were as outraged as I was in opening the paper Saturday morning to find a photo of a recently deceased person. I suppose it is an editor’s choice to run a picture of a body, but I feel the editor of the S-R in this case went way “over the top” on journalism ethics when you add the fact that the person hadn’t even been identified yet! What were you thinking?
