Fair to Ignore Murder Victims' Family Against Death Penalty?

When the California Commission on the Fair Administration of Justice held hearings last week on the fairness of the death penalty, I didn't expect all the details of more than 6 hours of hearings to be covered in my local newspaper, the Sacramento Bee. I was surprised, however, to see the Sacramento Bee article covering the hearings did not even mention the many murder victim family members who oppose the death penalty who spent all day at that hearing to share the stories I excerpt in my video. Instead, the Sacramento Bee only quoted a murder victim family member supporting the death penalty who did not even speak at the hearing.
