Question of the day

Jul 03, 2015

Our last question asked: Two former CNN journalists recently found themselves at the center of a crime story, rather than reporting on one. What happened and to whom? A gunman was killed while trying to rob journalists Lynne Russell and Chuck de Caro, who happened to be skilled with guns of their own.

It's a tie! Kudos to Lucia Walinchus of Professional News Services LLC for knowing which reporters and to Jeanne Kirk for answering what happened to them. Honorable mentions go out to Andrew Holtz (who bills it "My former co-workers Lynne & Chuck got in a shootout. The bad guy lost"), Maureen MacGregor, Ken Walker, Paul DelColle, Chris Cantergiani, Hollywood Highlands and Waterfield Designs for all getting that exactly right, as well.

As for today's question, here it is: Why is Washington City Paper refusing to photograph the Foo Fighters?
