Legal standards not media criteria

Kevin Thorson’s July 25 letter claiming that legal standards should guide what is printed is rather disturbing. After all, if that standard was followed everywhere in the news, then how would we know about dangers to the community?

Murder is illegal, but it makes the news all the time. Why should a wedding (that, by the way, doesn’t affect you at all) be any different?
