Letter: Warn the recruits about local media

The recent reporting of the incident with Travis Beck has me thinking The Forum owes it to all future college athletic recruits in this area to gather them for a workshop. These 17- to 18-year-old kids deserve to know what they are getting into when they agree to play sports at the college level. Warn them that they are the celebrities of the Fargo-Moorhead area and the local media will treat you like “Us Weekly” treats Lindsay Lohan or the average Kardashian sister.

I am increasingly disappointed by the tabloid style of what is supposed to be a fair and balanced news organization. Otherwise, if this is the direction you really want to continue in, then go all in and tell me who people are dating or breaking up with, and what designer they are wearing.
