How the media covers violence

While mass shootings leave us glued to our TVs, violence that happens regularly in our neighborhoods, cities and towns rarely make it past the crime blotter, let alone grip the nation. For a look at how the local media reports on crime and how coverage affects the way we perceive violence in our region, Morning Shift talks to DNA Info’s Mark Konkol, WBEZ’s Natalie Moore and the Chicago Tribune’s Matt O’Connor.
