Seattle Times letters to the editor

January 13, 2009 at 4:00 PM

Gay marriage

Not worthy of front-page coverage

Your lead story in the NW Sunday Section [“Activists pin hopes on Obama,” local news, Jan. 11] was about same-sex marriage advocates and a failed rally on Capitol Hill. The article described a small gathering that had about one-tenth the attendance that was expected.

Had this rally been over some other issue, it would have warranted a paragraph on the back page of the local news section. But, The Times gives it front-page, above-the-fold coverage. In reality, the headline should have read: “Failed rally demonstrates lack of support for same-sex marriage.”

If you are going to push an agenda, please be more explicit.

— Mark Morden, Seattle
