When a gunman opened fire at a Buffalo supermarket last weekend, I tried to help The Washington Post find a local freelance journalist to start covering the story while editors scrambled to get our own reporters to the terrible scene. As a Western New York native who worked at the Buffalo News for decades, I was pretty well positioned to be a scout.
I texted one former colleague who told me he would check to see if he could take an outside assignment. The response came back quickly:
“Denise said no.”
Buffalo News deputy managing editor Denise Jewell Gee made the right call, of course.
