A Story Worth The Steam It's Picking Up

Channon Christian and Chris Newsom were brutally murdered in ways that should never happen. But in a world where a non-rape of a black girl leads headlines for a month, (before they started admitting it *might* not have happened) the brutal rape, torture, and murder of two innocent college students has remained remarkably un-noticed.

If you haven't heard the story by now, I'll send you to Flopping Aces to read about the details. But to make a point, the torture they experienced was seemingly from the textbook of Saddam Hussein, or terrorist kidnappers.

I was listening to the radio, and apparently some one contacted The Tennessean about why they haven't reported this. And although they readily spent weeks on the Duke case, and quite some time reporting the death of Anna Nicole Smith, their statement was "We do not cover Knoxville stories."
