TOTS newsletter

While there was plenty going on in New Rochelle this week with the primary elections and what not but the biggest topic of discussion on Talk of the Sound was certainly the controversy over a photo of a man who died after his motorcycle collided with a car on Fifth Avenue near City Park in New Rochelle. While similar photos and videos in the past elicited no response, those opposed to the publication of a photo — the man being treated by paramedics in which his identify was not disclosed — have organized a Facebook page dedicated to shutting down Talk of the Sound and a boycott of the site.
