NY Times responds to criticism of Monson obituary
In their response the Times wrote:
Readers reacted strongly to our obituary for Thomas S. Monson, who served as prophet and head of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for nearly a decade. In hundreds of messages to The New York Times and dozens of comments on the obituary, readers, including many Mormons, wrote that the obituary focused too narrowly on the politics and controversies of the Mormon Church and overlooked Mr. Monson’s contributions to the community. We drew questions from readers’ feedback, and William McDonald, our obituaries editor, responded to them.
