The Deseret News has sunk to new lows with the publishing of the front-page picture of children taken from the Texas FLDS compound (April 10).

The tabloidlike presentation of innocent children at play being turned into sensationalism fodder is degrading to all individuals and our own society norms. Children can't even play and feel free anymore to be themselves without some sneak stalking them and taking their picture.

The individuals responsible for this tabloid slip or "misphoto" need to sincerely apologize and rethink their own human values, if they have any left.
