Reader: Headline was too explicit

I read The Inter Mountain online on a daily basis. Living out of state, it keeps me informed of things happening. I know that news is news and that’s what sells your paper, but there are times I think you go beyond your headline expression.

My concern is the recent headline of the Wilfong case. Was it necessary to detail the sex act so explicit? These families concerned have been humiliated and hurt enough.

They had an affair. Who really cared about the explicit details? I thought that was totally poor taste on your behalf.
