    Smile Newsweek reporter gives Websleuths a pat on the back

    The summer of Chandra Levy seems like yesterday, though almost a decade has passed. I'd like to think I'm a better reporter now, less likely to follow the pack. More important, the media landscape has changed. Blogs barely existed in 2001. Now, when I cover any high-profile crime, I make sure to check out Web Sleuths, an Internet forum for armchair detectives who analyze cases and post court filings.

    I have no idea what forum to post this in. If there's a more appropriate one, would someone please move it.

    The headline for this story is "Would Bloggers Have Cracked Chandra's Case?" It's an interesting look at how reporters and police stumbled in investigating Chandra Levy's disappearance.

    Thanks for the kind words BUT I can't say this enough.

    If not for the wonderful and dedicated Moderators and the wonderful and dedicated posters Websleuths would be just another discussion forum among millions.


    Thanks again everyone.

    This was such a nice suprise to wake up to this morning.

    That is really great I'm glad to be a part of such a fantastic investigative group. It feels good to know that we are being noticed. I think this deserves a song.

    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    I am not familiar with that site but I'll take a look. Thanks T-Rex.

    The media didn't learn with Levy's case because they did the exact same thing in the Elizabeth Smart case except the false suspect (Richard Ricci) only met Elizabeth once, had a solid alibi for the night of the kidnapping, and there was ZERO proof of any sort that he took her. Didn't stop the cops or the media from proclaiming him guilty. Just like with Gary Condit.

    When John Walsh said soon after Chandra went missing that there was no way Condit was involved is when I changed my mind. Until that point I thought, like everyone else, he was guilty.

    Because of these two cases, unless the proof is solid and strong, I don't assume somone is guilty anymore.

    Like Ms. Smalley pointed out, we love to take the public docs and tear into them, we analyze all the info and toss around ideas and theories.

    Had Websleuths been like it is now during the Levy disappearance I would think there would have been a lively discussion about Condit and his guilt or innocence. I would also bet that many Websleuth members would have come to the conclusion that Condit did not do it.

    As a former reporter, I would have loved to have a resource like this around. The sheer number of people involved and the cases listed is pretty amazing. And it's true, you never know who's gonna have that one little piece ...

    it wasn't till Tricia took over, that this community

    became what it is today. Thank-you tricia and all the mods

    who have worked so hard to make it so.
