A discussion of the media’s coverage of rape, torture case

For the past two weeks, we’ve been horrified as details emerged about the rape and torture of a woman in Logan County. It’s been a difficult case for investigators to sort through. And it’s been a difficult story for the media to cover.

On our television program “Outlook,” we examined how the media have treated this story. Beth Vorhees moderated the discussion with Charleston Gazette City Editor Rob Byers, West Virginia Public Broadcasting News Director Greg Collard, Charleston attorney David Fryson, and Corley Dennison, dean of the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Marshall University.
