Gathering the Facts....It Isn't Easy!!!

Posted on August 31, 2007 at 3:35pm 0 Comments

When a major news event such as Wednesday night's tragic fire in West Roxbury occurs, news reports, rumors and other information comes in by the minute often changing and conflicting. Those who are covering such events have an awesome responsibility not only to report the news in a timely fashion, but also to be as accurate as possible.

Quite often the media is criticized for misinformation or reporting what is believed to be fact at the time.…

Personal Reflections on West Roxbury Fire

Posted on August 29, 2007 at 11:47pm 3 Comments

As you all know I have been chasing fires all my life. Tonight I witnessed a 4 alarm fire in West Roxbury that killed 2 Boston Fire Fighters.

While others snapped photos or pushed closer to get video, I walked away and could not bring myself to take any more photos. I took 1 photo and then realized what was happening. That photo I feel is…
