1/ Hall of Shame
February 17, 2011
Shortly after launching SRUV we read an article in the Mint Hill (NC) Times; it was this article which provided our direction and purpose. When you've read the article you'll know everything you need to know about pit bull journalism. It's a perfectly distilled example of a journalist responding to the mauling death of a child; he pivots and interviews an advocate of fighting breeds. All other examples of pit advocacy journalism, and there have been hundreds, pale in comparison to this.
