The intersection of news, bloggers and victims

Police officer cited for running down baby in Jamaica Plain | Universal Hub:
"David Abel at the Globe buries the lead in this story about that August incident involving a police vehicle knocking a baby out of a stroller at Centre Street and Seaverns Avenue in JP: The officer involved was issued a citation and banned from driving any police vehicle until after completing a driver's ed class.

Also, the mother got so sick of being blamed for the accident, she and her husband are moving to Newton.

The article itself is an interesting rumination on the intersection of news, bloggers and victims (and it shows why we still need professional journalists) but, gosh, couldn't the Globe have reported earlier on the outcome of the case instead of burying the actual news at the bottom of a magazine piece?"
