When reporters get in the story

Posted By on Thu, Dec 4, 2008 at 8:49 AM

Ron Breeding of KUAR has developed a full report on a media ethics matter that has caused some buzz in news circles -- the assembled friends of the late Anne Pressly, who gathered at LR police hq the night Curtis Vance was arrested in the KATV anchor's killing. As we've reported before, some of those there, including some news staffers, shouted at Vance as he was led from the building to a patrol car. One called him a monster. Another said he would die. Breeding raises the question of whether those who put aside their detachment should be covering the story. Breeding's report says 7's Jessica Dean, who'd covered the arrest for KATV, was among those who shouted at Vance later.

Here's Fox 16's angle.
