Perhaps annoyed by the fact that the public (i.e. news media) was excluded from the small crowded building where the funeral was taking place, the newspaper used the headline: “Cérémonie à guichets fermés“. At least one blogger and one letter-writer found that to be a tacky and inappropriate comparison between a private family funeral and a rock concert.
