Media outlets cautious with Newtown 911 recordings

By Brian Stelter and Michael Pearson, CNN

(CNN) - Wednesday's release of audio recordings of the 911 calls from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings forced news organizations to make difficult - and sometimes unpopular - decisions about what to broadcast and what to hold back.

News executives said they were considering both the wishes of the community where the school was located - Newtown, Connecticut - and the journalistic impulse to report on one of the biggest news stories of the past year.

    Can I simply say what a relief to find someone who actually is aware of what theyre talking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know how you can carry an issue to mild and make it important. Extra individuals have to read this and perceive this side of the story. I cant consider youre no more standard because you definitely have the gift.
