KERRY: News Tribune afraid to print real news

I’m having a difficult time understanding why the wife of the governor adjusting to her new home (TNT, 3-4) is more important (half of the first page) than U.S. Secretary of State Kerry giving Egypt $190 million with the promise of more while America is financially in ruins (TNT, 3-4).

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or independent, everyone must be as stunned as I am.

I just consider the continual bankrupting of our country by politicians a lot more important than Trudi Inslee relaxing at the Governor’s Mansion.

Why not just bury the entire article? It’s obvious you didn’t want to print it. You even revamped the article about police dogs to fill the page. Oh, and thank God tanning beds will be spared (TNT, 3-4). Really? That’s what you consider “front-page news”?

Who cares about news? At least we still have the comic section; print that on the front page.
