What's wrong with this picture?

Readers of the Sunday Oklahoman newspaper were made to endure a front page spread, continuing on to two other whole pages!, on this Oklahoma City police officer. The story? She was (is?) a he! Yes, nothing else newsworthy in the whole world or Oklahoma, so we get three pages of this, complete with photos! Here she is when she was he. And now, years later still with receding hair line, here she is.

Now, I admit, any coverage of this "story" would have been too much in my opinion. But THREE pages?! Can anyone say, "forcing the issue"?
