Pulp journalism

Dear Editor:

Either the editor at the Aspen Daily News was laid off in a cost-saving measure or he/she has no conscience. The front-page stories in Tuesday and Wednesday’s Aspen Daily News papers are tragic. The only thing more tragic is the sensational, front-page coverage they were given. How desperate can Danforth and Co. get!?

That “trash journalism” just reinforces my decades-old decision to never spend another nickel on advertising in that rag. I will not pay for the ink that attempts to capitalize on another’s misfortune.

“If you don’t want it printed, don’t let it happen” is not just a catchy slogan. It is a lame excuse to print whatever dubious “news” can be dug up on the police blotter. Those poor, lamentable bottom feeders, what a pathetic way to make a living.
