Interview with Sheriff Mel Bailey
QUESTION 24
INTERVIEWER:

OK, TELL ME ABOUT MEDIA INVOLVEMENT HERE.

Sheriff Melvin Bailey:

We had beautiful, factual reporting with the local media. Birmingham Post Herald, Birmingham News, Channel 6, 13, 42, these people were substantially factual in their reporting. We had trouble with freelance reporters, people who I suspected were capable of making a story, creating a story, hiring somebody to create a problem.
