Probably because nobody thinks that it is a sensational story worthy of being a large headline on the first page. But every article can't be a big story. And a newspaper isn't about printing only the big flashy stories. But his statement was that it wasn't newsworthy. And to not be newsworthy means it isn't worthy of even being news. And that simply isn't true. Pomona Valley isn't some glitzy metropolis where attempting to break into someones home doesn't mean much. And if this was the New York Times or a similar newspaper it undoubtedly wouldn't have made the news. But this is Pomona Valley. And people here do have an interest when criminals are caught rather than getting away with thir crimes. Especially when the crime was against our neighbors.Ya right is entitled to his (or her) opinion. If it isn't newsworthy to him, why do you all have to force your assessment of the story on him?
I think it's great to hear that these criminals were caught, but I can also also understand that, like many of the events reported by IVDB, it isn't all that remarkable as a news story.
And to be honest, he didn't just make a statement. He asked "how is that newsworthy?". And when you ask a provocative question you shouldn't be upset when you get an answer. And if you look back at his posts, you'll see that when he did get answers to that question he refuted them each time.
Yes, it may not be an important story or earth shaking. But that doesn't mean it's newsworthy. And you may not think it was remarkable, but then maybe you've forgotten over the years what the word "remarkable" even means. Younger people seem to think that the word means something along the lines of "amazing" or "extraordinary". But no, it simply means something worth making a remark about. And yes, the fact that this attempted burglary didn't end up as the norm and just be a reprot taken after the fact is worth remarking about. They were caught and arrested. And yes, that's news. Good news. And yes, newsworthy, even if you and your friend ya don't agree.
Yes, he's entitled to his opinion. And since this is a public forum we're also entitled to disagree with him. Especially if we think he is completely wrong to think that it wasn't worth mentioning in this little IVDB internet edition. And the fact that some people commented and were happy to read it seems to prove that it was indeed not only newsworthy, but appreciated.
