Making Tough Decisions

A trio of Ohio National Guardsmen were killed in Afghanistan last week in a suicide bombing.

Sgt. 1st Class Shawn T. Hannon, Capt. Nicholas J. Rozanski and Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey J. Rieck were all from our area, and there were photos and video of the explosion available to the broadcast and print media. Some ran them, and some didn’t–and Ben Marrison from the Dispatch wrote a lengthy piece explaining his paper’s position.

What are your thoughts?

In addition, some family members did not wish to talk to the media at first, and many have now pulled away from talking. What would you do in terms of following up on this story?

We will discuss in class.
