Shame on the News-Leader for trying to make $$$$ from the murder of an innocent child

This petition had 424 supporters

The local paper here in Springfield MO called the News-Leader has gone too far. Over the years we've had to endure biased news articles with slanderous stories that have defamed public figures and local businesses without any due diligence to corroborate facts. With the heinous murder of one of Springfield's own innocent children, Hailey Owens, you would think that instead of giving a face to the killer they would pay respect and honor the life of the little girl that was taken from our community. Instead of this, they decided to not only give this guy an "exclusive" interview but to also spend their money on expensive LED billboards advertising this interview with an oversize photo of the guy. If they think people in this community care about his motives they are seriously out of touch with Springfield MO and its citizens. We stand with the family and friends of Hailey and demand our local newspaper to stop giving horrible people a public forum to spew their hate and poison. If they don't listen to the people we promise to stop giving them our money, change is on the horizon.
