Phew

11 Apr

We’ve been working on a really, really, really important story for the last week. We’ve been trying to figure out what it was that happened to Topher out at that lake, and I think we got it.

Now, a lot of the information we were given was off the record, which is the most annoying thing ever as a journalist, because you know something is true but you can’t prove it.

Two of our editors had to meet with the lawyer to make sure we weren’t saying anything that could get us sued. We went over the article with a fine-tooth comb (I think this was the first time I’ve ever read a news article out loud before we sent it to print) for anything that could get us questioned.

I wish this article didn’t have to be written, but since it did, I’m glad it turned out the way it did.

You can read it here.
