Considering that the memorial honoring John McCain dominated the news, I was eager to read more about it — who was there, why he picked certain individuals to eulogize him, the significance of the men's choir, etc.

I was shocked that our newspaper didn't have it on the front page … and then even more shocked that it wasn't even in the first section! Then I thought it would be on the front page of the second section, which is usually national news. To my dismay, it wasn't even there — but several articles regarding President Donald Trump were!

Finally, on page B2, there was a photo taken at the memorial, and then just a short blurb regarding the memorial was in the section of what's going on around America! Our paper should always reflect the news that is dominating our nation. I was so disappointed in this newspaper!
