Crime Stories in Style Section?

I am continually surprised and shocked that all coverage of the Cosby case in the Washington Post can be found in the Style Section.  This is the section for book reviews, movies, Dear Caroline, etc.  I think a case like this belongs in the main news section of the paper.  I really should write a letter to the editor!

Agree.  The editing of late leaves a bit to be desired.

I've noticed this in many papers and also the 

Online papers and I think it might be to get 

readers to look at more variety of sections.

 

Maybe the advertisers want them to do that?

Well, maybe it does have something to do with "style".    I always had a tendency to pigeonhole my co-workers by "style".......ya know; the mooch, the philanderer, the gossip, the braggard.................

Our paper has decided not to put ant bad news on the front page of our news paper!

 

So if we want any local news it will be hidden somewhere  possibly on a back page.or ???

Always be thankful and you'll have than more than you know.
