Editor & Publisher: Journos in Bay Area Launch ‘Chauncey Bailey Project’. In a collaboration reminiscent of the 1976 “Arizona Project,” more than two dozen San Francisco Bay Area journalists are launching the Chauncey Bailey Project to continue the investigative reporting the Oakland Post editor was pursuing when he was murdered on Aug. 2.
This is heartening news. A few weeks ago I questioned the relative silence in the journalism community about Bailey’s killing. I subsequently heard from a friend who’s involved in this new project that people were going to push this hard, and here we go.
