LTE: Headline reporting Christina Grimmie’s murder

The following letter to the editor was sent to by reader, Lou Bethel.

I am a big time follower of and check the website on an ongoing basis. But was disappointed and upset about a recent headline regarding the murder of the young singer in Orlando.

Your headline was:

The Voice’ contestant Christina Grimmie gunned down after concert

How about this instead:

The Voice’ contestant Christina Grimmie murdered by a fan after concert in Orlando.

Why focus on the implement used in this senseless murder? A sensationalist headline plays into the hands of people that blame guns and not the individual. The fact is she was murdered by a sick person. Let’s keep the focus on personal responsibility.

Thanks for listening,

Lou Bethel
