Article was like those found in tabloids

To the Editor:

It was shocking to read the article entitled “Crossing the Line” published June 1 in The Smoky Mountain News. This was classic tabloid reporting with more drama than fact reporting, filled with innuendos and hypotheticals.

It is impossible to take Ms. Ellison’s article seriously additionally because of her amazingly inadequate writing skills. It is astounding The Smoky Mountain News would publish an article riddled with poor grammar (i.e., incomplete sentences and entire paragraphs without a clear subject matter) and illogical progression of reporting “details.” The element of foul, four-letter words only emphasized the desperate nature of this article in portraying a seemingly judicial injustice, according to Ms. Ellison.  

There is no room for tawdry sensationalist journalism in a local newspaper which prides itself on reporting facts to keep the community abreast of information and events.
