Bill asked me to post this story in hopes it would open up a fairly decent discussion. I realize that part of this story is about well, me. But myself and photographer Nathan Sharkey tried to expand on the larger issue going on here – there’s such a lack of accountability for what people say or post on the internet.
I’m still not sure how or why but this story has taken off nationally. When I pitched this on Monday I looked at it this way… television is such a powerful medium and we’re lucky enough to be a part of it so why not use it to maybe try to do some good and get this kind of “cyber bullying” to end.
