Why is The News focusing on virus deaths?
I continue to be appalled at The Alpena News rendition of journalistic sensationalism. A recent headline announces “another death from COVID-19” in the Alpena area. Where are the headlines that count the number of deaths from cancer, stroke, automobile accidents and on and on? On that same day there were four obituaries of other deaths but no headlines as to how they died. There are enough people suffering stress from the virus without The News singling one case. Lets be a little more compassionate with our selection of stories.
