Dan Merkel: Modesto Bee sensationalizes murder-suicide

In the June 28 paper, the front-page story “Four dead in apparent Turlock murder-suicide” blasted the sad and tragic story of the murder-suicide in Turlock. Why is this front-page news? Surely, in these complex times, there is far more meaningful news worthy of The Bee’s front page.

Perhaps it says something about you and the public that you elect to feature such tragic news.
