“She Said,” a worthy entry to a journalism film genre that includes “Spotlight” and “All the President’s Men,” isn’t just about the power of journalism. It’s also about courage, from the women who suffered sexual misconduct at the hands of Harvey Weinstein and came forward at personal risk, enabling New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey to tell a story that launched the reckoning known as the #MeToo movement. Associated Press film critic Jocelyn Noveck writes that if “She Said,” starring an excellent Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan, lacks some of the dramatic suspense of other movies in the genre, its broader purpose is to highlight the exacting journalism and the personal bravery of the story.

"It might seem like Noah’s death is unique and unprecedented. It isn’t. Children die in septic tanks each year, but unlike Paul and Ashley, few of their parents see the inside of a courtroom." With "Late Edition: Crime Beat Chronicles" we're presenting notable true crime stories, as reported by journalists for the dozens of various Lee-Enterprises owned publications from around America. For this latest season, we wanted to highlight a series from The Roanoke Times that was first reported and produced in 2018 by journalists Jacob Demmitt and Robby Korth. A 5-year-old child went missing in Dublin, Va., in spring 2015. When his body was discovered days later in the family's septic tank, the mother was put on trial both by the court system, as well as social media, where misinformation, accusations and vengeance-fueled comments spread unchecked. It's a heartbreaking and tragic story, but Roanoke Times reporters Jacob Demmitt and Robby Korth went to great lengths to present an honest and well-rounded narrative that explores the ways a community failed one of their own while also touching on broader implications like the effects of Facebook, the stigma of drug addiction in rural America and the distortion of facts.
