As bigger outlets from all over the world swarm Newtown to cover an unfathomable tragedy and as legacy outlets and prolific Tweeters alike spat out misinformation and rumors, the Hartford Courant had the best account I’ve seen so far. Its coverage continues to be excellent: patient, accurate, and compassionate.
- Tom Dudchik’s site CT Capitol Report which has done a tremendously thorough and sensitive job aggregating the local and national coverage since the news broke
- State Police Lt. Paul Vance. He has always been a pro and it certainly has made a difference when the eyes of the world has been on his department. As the Chicago Sun-Times writes, “Connecticut State Police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance delivered a master class in how to relay information and handle the media in the wake of a catastrophe. Composed yet compassionate, straightforward without being robotic or wooden, Vance comes across as a cop who views his relationship with reporters as cooperative rather than adversarial, more of a partnership than a necessary evil.”
Please consider our comments section an opportunity to post your thoughts on the media coverage to date. Stay Classy.

Earlier this year we reported that Anne Amato, who has decades of experience covering the Naugatuck Valley, had filed a complaint alleging age discrimation against the Connecticut Post with the CHRO. Now comes word that she is suing the Post with the help of veteran attorney John Williams. Ethan Fry’s comprehensive story is in the Valley Independent Sentinel.
