KCBS reports that publisher of the Oakland Post is urging Bay Area journalists to continue pursuing Chauncey Bailey’s search for the truth that ended abruptly when he was murdered execution style last week. Post Publisher Paul Cobb, seen here at the shooting scene last Thursday, has vowed that Bailey’s work won’t stop with his death. “This is a moment of disaster for journalism, nationally and internationally. One of the few journalists ever killed on American soil and he was in the pursuit of stories that were controversial,” Cobb told KCBS. “I hope that this is an opportunity for us to continue the work he was doing and to step up.” (Photo credit: Top, D.
