“She Said,” a worthy entry to a journalism film genre that includes “Spotlight” and “All the President’s Men,” isn’t just about the power of journalism. It’s also about courage, from the women who suffered sexual misconduct at the hands of Harvey Weinstein and came forward at personal risk, enabling New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey to tell a story that launched the reckoning known as the #MeToo movement. Associated Press film critic Jocelyn Noveck writes that if “She Said,” starring an excellent Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan, lacks some of the dramatic suspense of other movies in the genre, its broader purpose is to highlight the exacting journalism and the personal bravery of the story.

The past two years have been turbulent to say the least. We've all had to adapt and change course numerous times. Businesses haven't been immune to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many businesses bore the brunt of lockdowns. Unfortunately, some businesses didn't survive. The ones that did survive did so through multiple pivots and strong leadership. In fact, a number of the businesses that survived the past two years have emerged stronger and more resilient. After all, they made it through a once in a lifetime global pandemic.
Once in TV journalism there were people called assignment editors and news directors. Among their responsibilities was to instruct reporters and camera crews which stories they were to cover that day. Their choices were based on several factors that included what they regarded as news, viewer interest (i.e., ratings) and much more subtly, their own biases. When I began my journalism career as a reporter, there were only three broadcast networks and local TV and radio stations. The radio stations played music and reported local news. The news was what these gatekeepers said it was. When the broadcast TV networks went from 15-minute newscasts to 30 minutes, some expressed fear there wouldn’t be enough news to fill the time.

"It might seem like Noah’s death is unique and unprecedented. It isn’t. Children die in septic tanks each year, but unlike Paul and Ashley, few of their parents see the inside of a courtroom." With "Late Edition: Crime Beat Chronicles" we're presenting notable true crime stories, as reported by journalists for the dozens of various Lee-Enterprises owned publications from around America. For this latest season, we wanted to highlight a series from The Roanoke Times that was first reported and produced in 2018 by journalists Jacob Demmitt and Robby Korth. A 5-year-old child went missing in Dublin, Va., in spring 2015. When his body was discovered days later in the family's septic tank, the mother was put on trial both by the court system, as well as social media, where misinformation, accusations and vengeance-fueled comments spread unchecked. It's a heartbreaking and tragic story, but Roanoke Times reporters Jacob Demmitt and Robby Korth went to great lengths to present an honest and well-rounded narrative that explores the ways a community failed one of their own while also touching on broader implications like the effects of Facebook, the stigma of drug addiction in rural America and the distortion of facts.
