Chasing the AJC

Give the AJC credit for a nice scoop Sunday. After Gary Hilton pleaded guilty to the murder of hiker Meredith Emerson, it was inevitable that the court records of the case would become public. Most news organizations would have kept abreast of that release on a daily basis. But the AJC somehow got it first, and put it on the front of its Metro section Sunday. TV had to wait until Monday to chase the story– which included details of Hilton’s confession, and the extent to which the victim fought her killer before finally succumbing.
