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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
