Newspaper Apologizes for 'Lesbian' Photo Caption
The News-Times (Conn.) is no different from any other newspaper, except that they just got busted doing what journalists often do behind the curtain; make fun of the religious.
News-Times ran a photo online of the Immaculate High School girls' soccer team after scoring a winning goal. Unfortunately for them, they forgot to change the caption from "celebrating a teammate's decision to come out of the closet as a lesbian."
This wasn't some lowly intern that did this, it was the copy editor; the last line of journalistic principle at a newspaper.
The copy editor, who was "goofing around" was not identified. Do you think newspapers would let a government employee who made a mistake like this get away with not being identified?
No, they wouldn't.
