The Slice

The Wednesday Slice question

You might have heard this said.

When people with personal knowledge of a news event see coverage of it in the media, they invariably find inaccuracies, distortions and tone-deafness.

There undoubtedly is something to that. But it is also true that at least some of those making such claims didn't actually know what they were talking about or had a perspective-warping agenda and bias about the event in question. People tend to be pretty subjective about what constitutes objective coverage.

So, OK. That having been said, I'm going to go ahead and ask the question.

When you have had personal knowledge of a news event, what did you think of the Spokane news media's coverage of it?
