Open letter to the Detroit Free Press

Dear Editors of the Detroit Free Press:

Rima Fakih - Miss USA press photo
Earlier today, you published a post on your website that invited visitors to vote as to which famous woman had the best cleavage. This, of course, is yet another example of click bait.

I know that the internet age has made it hard to do professional journalism in the 21st century. Many outstanding newspapers have shut down and countless others are struggling simply to get by. The fact that we are both working in an economically challenge city like Detroit certainly does not make things easier for you.

I get all of these things. I really do.

However, I regret to inform you that rating cleavage is my gimmick, not yours. Please find a new one.

Thank you,
Frank Nemecek
Subscriber and former Detroit Free Press paperboy
