Regarding the April 15 article, "Carl's Jr. Founder Accused of Insider Trader Scheme":
The Times has sunk to new levels of yellow journalism. The attack on Carl N. Karcher and his family by Bruce Horovitz and Keith Bradsher was so vicious, vindictive and prejudiced that the political and religious bias of your writers and editors becomes quite clear.
I have never met any of the Karchers. I am sure they are all quite capable of defending themselves. However, this hatchet job is so obvious it should not go unanswered. The action brought against Karcher, if true , could turn out to be nothing more than a slip of the tongue, a minor indiscretion. And yet with obvious glee you go after Karcher in particular as if he had been caught standing over a dead body with a smoking gun.
Your headline says he is accused of an "insider trading scheme." Nowhere in this article or other articles in the business section is any substantiation given for this "scheme," which, as far as is known, is not even alleged by the plaintiff.
