The 9th Street Journal
The 9th Street Journal is a Durham news website run by journalism students in Duke University's DeWitt Wallace Center for Media and Democracy. It is published by faculty in the Sanford School of Public Policy.
In this latest episode of our Reflections series, host Cameron Oglesby speaks with 9th Street reporter Lilly Clark about her experience covering traffic court. Clark highlights the conundrum she faces in covering even small traffic offenses and how the permanence of this digital age in journalism allows stories about mundane criminal offenses to stick with people for the rest of their lives. She discusses what journalists can do to ensure they hold the courts accountable without negatively affecting those who have earned their second chance.
