Forum owes pastors apology

I was disappointed with The Forum and reporter Patrick Springer for running another article on the two pastors from Olivet church. This caused me to wonder how many other stories The Forum has printed over the past year on DUI arrests where the pictures of the arrested persons made the front page either initially or a week later.

It would seem only fair to treat all DUI arrests the same. It should be the same for teens, males or females, senior citizens, laborers, doctors, nurses, Forum editors or reporters. If The Forum does not have a fairness policy, maybe it’s time to consider one.

From my point of view, this looks like the pastors should be given a written apology from The Forum for printing the article, or we should start seeing other faces of DUI on The Forum front page.
