Newspapers have a quirky kind of give and take with their readers. Typically it’s a predominantly giving relationship — that is until the newspaper does something readers don’t particularly agree with, and then the newspaper takes it… on the chin.
Such was the case recently when the Monitor made the decision to start publishing mug shots in its weekly Police Beat, that’s become a standard feature on the Tuesday front page over the past several months. Mug shots are, after all, as accessible as the arrest reports that go along with them.
The Monitor, in an effort to remain fresh in its approach to delivering information to the community, moved forward with the mug shots. In newsroom discussions leading up to the move, it was noted that moving Police Beat to the front page a couple of months ago had received little comment from readers one way or the other.
Usually, when a newspaper is not ruffling any feathers out in the readership community, about all you’ll hear is, “Great story the other day on…” or “I really liked that photo of the kids playing at the park.”
