Are Courier-Journal editors losing their perspective on which news stories warrant screaming banner sized headlines?
The question isn’t about relevance or the local nature of the story, it is the SCREAMING headline across the entire top of the page, a treatment used for massive natural disasters, mass killings, or the assassination of a major world figure. The crux of this story warrants a one column headline at best, not even on the front page. Hype.
The next day: less hysterical lower case, partial page headlines for the man sentenced to 12 years for defrauding others out of $108 million + a horse attempting a feat earned by only 11 during a 142 year stretch. I rest my case.
