This is a great post for all journalists to follow, not just particularly investigative reporters. I think it is important for journalists of all types to grow a thick skin and to not fight their editor. A part of being a journalist, is to accept that not everything we write will make it to print exactly how we had it.
I’m so very very sorry. I lost my husband to suicide 9 years ago this month and my 17 year old daughter has attempted to follow his path multiple times. I know this fear you feel. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
I am one of those people, affected by mass incarceration…not the incarcerated, just someone who loves an incarcerated young man I happen to give birth to.
Part of me was relieved when he was sentenced but part of me has not been able to let go of the fear since the day of his admission he needs help.
