Readers' forum: Misleading headline

Published: Saturday, Feb. 26 2011 12:00 a.m. MST

On Feb. 18 you began an article on the front page, written by Tad Walch, headlined, "Cambridge calls porn a public service." The headline was misleading and slanderous to Cambridge University in England. Cambridge's student population is over 17,000, according to Wikipedia sources. The debate which took place at Cambridge about whether or not porn provides a "good public service" was attended by approximately 615 students, and 231 of these students voted in favor of a proposition that porn is a good public service.

I fail to see how such a meager number of students can be construed to state that Cambridge University claims porn a public service. The headline ought to have been something like, ".01 Percent of Cambridge students vote porn as a public service."
