The Ratings Chase and KROQ's Hoax

I'm appalled at the tabloid treatment in "Will KROQ Get Away With 'Murder'?" (April 22). It has to be the most skewed I've read.

With such a headline, you spout your opinion that what the deejays did was comparable to the actual act of murder. (And if murder is such a high priority at The Times, why were the 15 violent deaths that occurred locally over the weekend given far, far less space and less prominent placement than the KROQ hoax-murder article?)

To use most of last half of the article as a forum for competitors is sleazy. Of course the competitors think KROQ should lose its license; then they can grab a bigger part of the market.
