Media on the stories told
#2
Kurtis: Information that comes to the press from outside an "official source" in a "leak" can be useful. It is the lifeblood of investigative programs like this. But if the leaks aren't true, they can cause great harm. An astounding number of media outlets will use that bit of information in many ways. Talk shows, columnists, newscasts, tabloids . The effect of this is the "media indictment", made without ever having to verify the source of the leak or its truth. We have presented the JonBenét case from the Ramseys' point of view. Does it mean they should or should not be indicted? We don't know. A grand jury will soon answer that. But they have already been indicted and convicted in the media. If they are now found innocent, how will they get their reputation back?
