Question of the Week
Has local media coverage of the attacks on UVA students by CHS students been sensational?

"I couldn't believe the police actually informed the media. The police aren't required to tell everything that may or may not be true about suspects. If these kids did what they're accused of, they should go to jail, regardless of motivation. Do we need special legislation for every reason we shouldn't attack and rob each other?" --Josh Chernila

"For the media to report what the police say, factual or probable, they shouldn't have to censor themselves. It's up to the readers to decide the importance of the use "may have been." --Kevin Miller

"I'm an advocate of full disclosure with citizen oversight in special circumstances." --R.B. Smith
