In two letters to the editor on Friday, readers complain about overall coverage of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and what it says about the publication as a whole. Here’s the item in question. And another in Style on the Royal Danish Ballet performance at the Kennedy Center.
Your coverage wasn’t befitting a head of state
Letter one (one line summation): The Post largely ignored the queen’s visit save for two small mentions.
Marlene A. Koenig, Alexandria
Letter two: The June 10 “Reliable Source” described German Chancellor Angela Merkel as “a fellow Northern European head of state” to Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. As a newspaper that claims expertise in political coverage, you should know the difference between a head of state and a head of government.
Harlan Cohen, Washington
