Columbia Journalism Review

Praise of Tom’s coverage in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel of the 2007 Steven Avery murder trial, which is the subject of the 2015 Netflix series Making a Murderer:

“Most of the (Steven Avery trial) headlines came from the he-said-she-said of the courtroom, as is so often the case in trial coverage. The press was caught in a storm of spin. That looks bad on film, but the Netflix audience isn’t apprised of the scope or depth of the coverage. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, for example, provided consistently even-keeled and incisive reporting.” — Columbia Journalism Review, Jan. 7, 2016
