  • Convinced several news organizations to remove an online article about a sports coach who had been arrested for allegedly sending lewd texts to a high school student by emphasizing journalism ethics and convincing the outlets to weigh public interest and news value of an old story against the harm caused by continued publication of an outdated article.
