    Good for him. Out of order when it messes with someones feelings.

    You're tactless and irresponsible all the time. This being the case, you ought not to post stuff like this, you copy-and-paste pansy hack.

    O.k. So how did he die? Didn't you want to clear it up? Doesn't this usually happen in Vanity Fair?

    This is a complicated situation. On one hand there's the reporter. I agree, their use of "alleged" was clearly intended to imply it could have been suicide, as was speculated when his death was first made public. I can see why the reporter saw reason to include this aspect of the story, but ultimately, don't agree with the decision. Speculation is exactly that, speculation. If it was a story about the winner of the Superbowl by all means include it, but when it comes to suicide? Definitely not.

    However, I have to agree with some other commenters. You're not only guilty of using "calculated" wording to make implications in stories and headlines, you sensationalize. There are plenty of examples, the first that comes to mind is your story on that B2K singer who accidentally slashed his wrist open on a glass coffee table. The way the headline was written, the information it didn't include—that is, the word 'accident' or something along those lines—likely made a number of readers initially think he had cut his wrist on purpose. It certainly didn't strike that out as a possibility. You made an unethical implication of your own.

    I love him, and I cannot wait to see him in the latest Batman movie. I am sorry to hear about his brother.

    Note: Speaking of wording of articles, there might be an error in this one. "Joe points out…" instead of "Dan points out…".

    It sounds like the reporter was just doing his job. On the 911 tape, you hear the operator say the person who called thought is was a drug overdose. It's sad, but Everything I've read says Overdose. He's in the public eye, it's gonna come out.1111111

    Actually it is not necessary to use the word "alleged" in the context of someone who is dead. One can say that a dead person was a whore, a thief, a murderer or a pimp as long as they are dead. The simple reason is that the dead cannor defend themselves. A natural person loses all rights upon death. Pretty straigtforward. It's the LIVING one has to be concerned with.
