I’m bothered by one thing with the Greeley Tribune web site. Within the high proper nook of the house web page and far of their on-line content material, the Tribune makes use of the time period “English” subsequent to an American flag and “Spanish” subsequent to the flag of Spain to point the language choices of their content material.
First, kudos to the Tribune for providing something in Spanish — it’s undoubtedly not a requirement however a service to the neighborhood who doesn’t learn in English. However, that is problematic for a number of causes: The English language just isn’t demarcated by the American flag and most Spanish-speaking readers of the Tribune don’t come from Spain.
I voiced this concern to the Editor, Jerry Martin, in a name final month and he assumed it was doubtless one thing to do with the web site however I’ve seen that the Each day Digital camera of Boulder makes use of the very same platform for media supply and they don’t have the flags of their nook.
Eradicating the flags from the nook is a straightforward gesture that claims “We care concerning the little issues as a result of that’s what journalism is about — being appropriate about even little info.”
Do the suitable factor Greeley Tribune and take away the flags.
