ARE CRIME AND DISASTER NEWS SUPPRESSED?

0

Dear Source,
Looking at the news you publish, I do not see anything about the shooting near the cemetery in Christiansted, or the man who fell out of the truck and was run over by another vehicle near Coakley Bay Tuesday afternoon.
Do we suppress crime and disaster news so that it can't further contaminate our image out in the real world?
