ITS SOME BULL HOW YOU GET THE STORY OF ONE SIDE...AND LEAVE THE OTHER SIDE LOOKING LIKE THEY WERE THE BAD GUYS. FOR SOME REASON THE MEDIA HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF CENTURIES...BUT THE SAD PART IS, PEOPLE STILL BUYS INTO THE BULL!

Kinia, I', sorry you feel this reporting ia biased and innacurate, but I don't think calling them names will make the situation better. If you know people who know more about the story than got written, introduce them to the reporter in the byline. It'a very common for a reporters to write a follow up story that digs deeper into why something like this happened. Get your sources to the reporter so that he (or she) will have the information they need to write a valid and truely all-encompassing follow up story.
It seems to me that you shouldn't complain a about a process unless you've tried to be a part of it first! If you've tried to improve it and gotten rejected, then you can and should take your complaints public.

I DIDN'T CALL ANYBODY, ANYTHING...IT'S JUST THAT, THEY SHOULD'VE GOT MORE INFORMATION, THAN JUST WRITING ONE SIDE OF THE STORY, AND NOT PROJECTING THE FAMILY SIDE OF THE STORY...THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT THE PEOPLE WILL NEVER HAVE THEIR VOICE, UNLESS IT IS POLITICAL.
