How many times have you read a newspaper headline only to get into the article and discover the headline didn't accurately reflect the news story? I've seen it many times including the headings over letters to the editor.
In today's Staunton News Leader it happened again. The title says, "Sayre: Anti-tax, anti-immigrant." If you read no further you would leave thinking Scott Sayre was anti-immigrant. But knowing that was not true, I read the letter and found it said he was anti-illegal immigrant.
There's a big difference in what was written in the letter and what was implied by the title.
The News Leader should print a retraction and owe up that Scott Sayre is totally for legal immigration but opposes using tax dollars to reward those who disregard our laws.
It's time for newspaper to stop playing games with headlines.
