Communtiy journallism and "big-city" TV: A case of corruption in West Virginia

This story from Columbia Journalism Review is about how a West Virginia TV station reported, using anonymous sources, that officials in a rural county were facing indictment while the local paper editorialized against naming names until the indictments.

The indictments have come down, and it provides an interesting teaching moment about the contrasts and the different frame in which community media operate.
