Sun thinks flower fungus is more important than deaths of Marines

March 23, 2013

Eight U.S. Marines died as a result of an explosion on a U.S. Army base in Hawthorne, Nevada Monday night while on a training exercise. This tragic story has been carried extensively by The Washington Post as well as national electronic and broadcast media outlets.

The Sun mustered no mention of this incident until Thursday ("Severna Park Marine dies in Nev. accident," March 21). A front-page story on a flower fungus was deemed more newsworthy by the editors of your once-respected publication.

How can this be?
