why does MSM pass over certain stories?

Brent Finnegan -- June 29th, 2007

David Reynolds has an interesting piece in today’s DNR. Why did the national MSM pick up the Jessie Marie Davis case in Ohio, but not the Rachel Good case in Crimora? And more importantly, why did Adam David Williams, a suspect in Good’s disappearance, participate with Elkton police in the Good investigation? And why has the grand jury gotten nowhere in this case?

  1. To me (and I have nothing concrete to back this up with), police officers are generally shielded from the criminal justice system…the harshest punishment I’ve seen doled out to a law enforcement officer in our area with the Police Chief of a small town who was stopped twice for DWI within a week — I believe he received a slight jail sentence.

    I’m sure someone has compiled a list of officers charged with offenses which would have cost them their jobs, which charged were later reduced and/or dismissed.

  2. Wasn’t Rachel Good from Elkton? Crimora’s in Augusta County — that’s where her mother lives.
