Reader feedback: Misleading headline

Re: Slovakia and Hungary fight, News Briefs, January 16-January 22, 2006

The title of your article is inaccurate as well as provocative. The message of the article is that the Slovaks and the Hungarians will attempt to cooperate. If one did not bother reading the article one would sense serious conflict between them.

Being somewhat familiar with the two peoples' history, you would do your readers a great service by accentuating the positive. As a news source, you should reflect the truth and educate the masses instead of promoting negativism.
