Alumnus William F. Baker writes about “Spotlight”

How ‘Spotlight’ missed the story: Column
USA Today: William F. Baker (ADL ’66; GRS ’68, ’72, communication sciences), director of the Bernard L. Schwartz Center for Media, Public Policy and Education at Fordham University, penned a piece about how the Academy Award-nominated filmSpotlight, which follows The Boston Globe’s coverage of the Catholic Church’s sex scandal, barely mentions the National Catholic Reporter’s previous coverage. The publication’s reporters had investigated the topic for 17 years, highlighting the importance of niche news outlets, he wrote.
