An apology to our readers

February 01, 2005

Last Saturday we published a photo on page A3 that was inappropriate for a family newspaper. The photo featured a man making an obscene gesture while making a court appearance in Berkeley County, W.Va. The decision to run the photograph was not made without discussion and was not taken lightly. Sometimes, in an effort to provide our readers with the full story, we make mistakes, as we did in this case. In retrospect, it was a decision we now regret.

We apologize to our readers, especially those the picture may have offended.
