Why did non-story end up on front page - twice?

IN OUR HUMBLE OPINION

How embarrassing for the Roundup to have to give its number one front page spot in Tuesday's paper to Brooke Utilities denial of the fraud charges brought by Mesa del Caballo resident Steve Gehring.

From our vantage point it's a clear of case of the Roundup covering its butt after it gave Gehring the same spot on the front page to level charges that were, at best, unsubstantiated.  Had the editor chosen to bury Gehring's story where it belonged - somewhere deep inside the paper - it wouldn't have had to give Brooke equal space after the California-based water company threatened to seek legal redress against those responsible for publishing the allegations.

It's was a non-story from the start.
