Aurora Theater Shooting

Aurora theater shooting: Is local media ignoring victims and their families?

Members of eleven families with a loved one who died in the Aurora theater shooting gathered yesterday to criticize Governor John Hickenlooper and a nonprofit in charge of donations, claiming they've been left out of the process.

Some of them also had complaints about another group: the local media.
