Tacky Unprofessional Newspaper trick

Katy Grimes: In today’s Sacramento Bee is a piece in the editorial pages about the race between U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer and Carly Fiorina.

However, the photos chosen by The Bee editorial staff are the real story.

It looks as if The Bee darkened Fiorina’s photo, making her look more like Eddie Munster.

And the really egregious aspect, is that the photo of Barbara Boxer is probably 20 to 30 years old. Yeah, I looked younger 20 to 30 years ago too.

I tried to find the story at The Bee online, but couldn’t. Perhaps they got enough email response, that it was scrubbed from the website.

When newspapers pull this nasty trick, it is most unprofessional and frankly, really tacky.
