Race Relations, Reporting and Rights

January 12, 1992

Re "Newborn Left in a Can 10 Hours Reported in Stable Condition" (Jan. 3): I commend you on being the most "politically correct" newspaper in the United States. You never show minorities in a bad light on the front page. Sports always has a person of color if a white is featured. However, I think you went over the line by pointing out that the baby left in a can was a "blue-eyed, blond baby." Had it been a dark-eyed, kinky-haired baby, you would have been up to your PC neck in lawsuits.

Your constant pandering to special interests is one of the reasons that people take news stories with a grain of doubtful salt. You can attempt to rewrite history but you will find difficulty in clouding reality.
