Seattle Times letters to the editor

July 16, 2013 at 7:03 PM

UW will pay for error that left child disabled

Photograph should not have been used

The little girl, MacKenzie Briant, who was horribly damaged by a medical error, did not deserve to be pictured on the front page of The Times in her tragic condition, nor did the Seattle public need to see her picture with their morning coffee. [“UW must pay family $15M for error that left their daughter disabled,” page one, July 13.]

There was enough information in the article about what happened to her. Showing that picture was sensationalistic and it was offensive.

It was too sad to see, and it was an invasion of MacKenzie’s privacy. That kind of picture is meant to be shown in court to get compensation for the family. It’s not meant to be on the front page of a newspaper.
