Our View:The people behind the newspaper
July 5, 2018
There are real people behind the publication of this newspaper.
The shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland which left five staff members dead is an all too sobering reminder of that fact.
Five people, all of whom were someone’s neighbors, friends, family members and coworkers, were murdered because of the work they do. The response from Chase Cook, a Capital Gazette reporter posting reports to social media from the scene wouldn’t surprise anyone who has spent time working in news.
“I can tell you this: WE are putting out a damn paper tomorrow,” he posted to Twitter.
