Boycott the Daily News!!

Gentle readers, normally the TrekMedic doesn't get involved in the variety of boycotts against anything that offends someone's sensibilities, and it isn't by accident that the Daily News has the moniker of "Daily Fishwrapper" on this blog, but yesterday's front page finally has pushed me to call for someone's head.

The TrekMedic won't dignify this rag by reposting the picture, but if you saw it, apparently the editors of the DN thought it was more important to talk about the trials, tribulations and familial woes of Eagles' Coach Any Reid, instead of focusing on the LODD death of Officer Chuck Cassidy!

That's right, readers: Andy's drug-addled kids were featured on PAGE 3, while the Cassidy tragedy only warranted PAGE 6!!!


Do yourselves a favor:
  • Write to the DN editors and express your outrage
  • Avoid the DN at all costs (wash your hands if you inadvertently come in contact with it)
  • Stop soliciting advertisers to the DN
  • And for you blue-collar sports nuts: watch more ESPN or Comcast Sport Net (except the evening Daily News Live Show)

Rest assured, I had started a letter to the DN, but then decided against sending it.

Since the editors have displyed their common sense and intellect, it would have taken me a lot longer to dumb-down my writing to their level.
