Readers Charge WaPo With Lackluster Coverage of Danish Royalty

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.

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.
