Pull Quotes Season 4, Episode 5: Should Canadian crime reporters start thinking beyond what they can print, to what they should?

Professors Maggie Jones Patterson and Romayne Smith Fullerton, co-authors of Murder in our Midst: Comparing Crime Coverage Ethics in an Age of Globalized News, join us to discuss regional approaches to crime reporting, and how they’re changing in the age of mass communication. We also discuss the recent sentencing decision in the trial of Toronto van-attacker Alek Minassian, and why it’s making waves in the Canadian journalism community. “Just focusing on this man’s name, does not equip the citizenry to make decisions, and help influence the people they elect to create policy.” – Romayne Smith Fullerton.
