Yesterday and Today. Two similar Spokane news stories with very different treatments.

Wednesday morning's Spokesman-Review had this headline and this front-page story. Wait, two front page stories related to the incident.

Today,  this story is on page 8. This happened in Spokane too. It took place the day after the first story ran.

There was no photo in the paper, but here is a photo that appeared on the S-R website and was shown on broadcast media.

Two deplorable similar events that occurred in Spokane within hours of each other, with some very different priorities of response from the Spokesman-Review and, it looks like, from the community.

Why? Any takers? I have a theory (or two).
