Hopefully, The Herald has taken serious notice of the concern of some Herald readers about the publicity given “Stormmy Paul,” the crook. You gave him most of the front page and two full inside pages in the front section extolling his accomplishments.
At the same time, articles such as saving historical parts of Everett received a half of a column on Page 4 and other positive articles are relegated to the back pages. The message this type of publicity sends to young people is not conducive to good citizenship. In addition, the punishment of house arrest and probation doesn’t seem to fit Stormmy Paul’s crime.
