Bonds trial draws more reporters than Bailey case

Bob Butler, in an article for the Maynard Institute, says there is a disparity in how the Barry Bonds and Chauncey Bailey trials are being covered by the media. More reporters, particularly from national media outlets, are covering the Bonds trial. But Butler quotes media experts who say the Bailey trial is much more significant when you look at how both cases impact society. Butler, a KCBS reporter, is part of the Chauncey Bailey Project, which has been investigating the Oakland Post’s murder four years ago.

I guess it has nothing to do with the fact that no one outside of the Bay Area has ever heard of Chauncey Bailey...

Perhaps it is time that the people outside of the Bay Area hear about Chauncey Bailey and why and how he died...
