Description of sex assault wasn’t suitable for public consumption

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,
On Thursday (8/15), a front page story appeared regarding a local man facing multiple rape charges. Daily Sun reporter Gail Ober went too far in her unnecessarily graphic description of these alleged assaults. I believe, that most readers needed no more clarification than the official charges levied. Testimony in open court doesn't need to be quoted when it is inappropriate for public consumption. Whether young or old, your readers don't glean more information from such sensationalism, the alleged crimes are disgusting enough, but your story was nothing short of pornographic.

PS: I realize what sells newspapers, but Gail remember yours is FREE!
