We are not all teenage dirtbags

I AM writing to you to express my anger at the false image of teenagers projected by the media. Just to be clear, I am not pointing the finger of blame at this paper in particular. This is just the way that newspapers seem to work.

For example, which of these headlines would a newspaper prefer to print?

'Teen rescues pensioner's cat from tree' or 'Teen caught with 26g of cocaine'?
