Seattle Times letters to the editor

January 11, 2009 at 6:00 AM

Starbucks’ jet

Misleading headline

The headline, “Stores closing, but Starbucks buys a jet” [News, Jan. 8] misrepresents the true circumstances.

Within the first three paragraphs, we learn that “Starbucks ordered the jet three years ago” and it just recently came into their possession. That’s called taking delivery, not purchasing, and it’s not the same thing. Both comments are misleading and sensationalist.

Starbucks deserves an apology, and I expect better from The Seattle Times.

— Michael Herman, Walla Walla
