Virginia Tech black ribbonThe American Journalism Review has an excellent piece on how local media covered the Virginia Tech shootings.

I know that I was amazed at how good a job the Collegiate Times in particular did during that time — in my day, they were more of a social club than a serious news outlet, and published half as many editions a week — even outshining the predictably solid Roanoke Times during the tragedy and its aftermath.

(AJR is a great bi-monthly read, better even than the IRE magazine.)
