Letter: Paper doesn’t always live up to ideals

To the editor:

I just finished reading your editorial entitled, “This is no place for a personal gripe.” You maintain the Tahoe Daily Tribune does not print stories about a specific person or business unless a law has been broken or the greater good of the community is at stake.

I recall a few months back there was a headline story on the front page concerning the South Lake Tahoe Humane Society. Because it was on the front page I read it with interest and when I was finished I wondered why it had ever been written, nevertheless put on the front page. No law had been broken and the greater good of the community was hardly at stake. Plus it was not even a good story.

We have been subscribing to the newspaper for the past four years and I have seen several examples of the newspaper being used to serve individual causes. However, I do agree with your basic ideas as set forth in this particular editorial.
