AbstractJust because competitors publish or air a story doesn’t mean you should follow their lead. Here are some factors to consider before deciding. For example, you have known for months that a candidate for a local office is gay, but just today a rival newspaper has published a story revealing his sexual preference to the public. Should your newspaper also publish a story? Or should you say nothing?
