Judge’s Comments: To me, this is the epitome of good journalism and its roles in both holding people accountable and covering things that really matter to the public. This was a situation that had such serious consequences that affected so many families — as well as one that demanded answers from those in authority who were responsible. The News-Sentinel did a great job of really digging deep — not shying away from a difficult, but vital, coverage.
