Since I spend an awful lot of time critiquing the press, I think it only fair to point out that the coverage thus far of the tragic murder of four Lakewood police officers, and the ensuing manhunt for the suspect has been pretty damn good. Both the Tacoma News Tribune and the Seattle Times have been on top of the story since shortly after it broke, doing what newspapers do best.
In fact, in this age of instantly updated websites, the newspapers have provided much better coverage than they ever could in the days of their mere print existence.
SeattleCrime.com also deserves a shout-out for its ongoing coverage, and particularly its on the ground reporting from the Leschi police action last night. Kudos all around.
