Abstract

"Stop the Presses" piece on media stories written in the narrative form, in which the reporter attributes thoughts and words to the principals without mentioning the source from which they were derived. As an example, Sarah Goodyear cites The Portland Newspapers' 27-week saga, "A Stolen Soul," on Yong Jones's quest to bring her son's murderer to justice, in which the author, Barbara Walsh, imaginatively filled in the details. With related editorial.
