Furious at coverage of Bushnell's funeral

I am unsure in which direction to vent my rage regarding your recent coverage of the funeral of Anne Bushnell (Irish Independent, April 27). Both the grandstanding by Twink and your culpable participation in the staged events leave a lot to be desired. Your coverage of the event was secondary to your interest in the tabloid-like presentation of Twink. As to her living status, it was not sufficient to warrant front-page coverage.

Anne Bushnell deserved better from a paper of your status and circulation and my only hope is that her family are not as hurt by your coverage as I am.
