In this NPR story, David Folkenflick reports on criticism of CNN after the network’s correspondent used information from Chris Stevens’ personal journals. Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, was the first sitting ambassador to be killed in more than 30 years. The reporter found the journal in the embassy after the attack. Stevens’ family did not want the journal used. What would you do in this case?
Folkenflick does a good job of examining both sides of the story.
