This comment is to share my disgrace in our Local newspaper, The Washington Daily News. This paper posted a picture that should have never made it to press, and Called it the PUBLIC's Right to KNOW? What about my father's Rights? He had the right of respect for him in his vulnerable condition. Unfortunately we lost our father due to the incident. And the Daily News refuses to post my comments there to this very day. So again what about the public's right to know my feelings? My father would be fighting for me if the role was reversed, therefore, Im doing it for him!! I would love any assistance with the idea of whats Morally and Ethically correct. Would you show a picture of someone having CPR performed on them being rushed to an ambulance with their arm dangling and lifeless body for all to see? If so, perhaps morals were passed up in this incidence also!

Sometimes the mullet wrapper is very insensitive as to how the profile some stories. I also think that they in their own way tried to apologize by covering the tributes to him.
The public does have the right to know things, but the facts could have been written and the pictures space could have been better utilized. Take out an ad in the paper if the won't print your letter to the editor or put it in Sound Off.
Leadership at the WDN could use some common sense and learn yo put it into action.
