The Capital Gazette has taken a defiant stance in the wake of the deadly shooting in its offices.
The newspaper dutifully putting out its morning edition despite the shooting deaths of five of its employees.
Hours after suspected gunman Jarrod Ramos stormed the paper’s office with a shotgun and went on a bloody rampage, the paper tweeted, “Yes, we’re putting out a damn paper tomorrow.”
Reporters from various publications offering to help pick up the slack. Then, just after midnight, the paper released its cover, showing the faces of those five lives lost.
It’s opinions section was intentionally left blank, save for this message: “Today we are speechless.”
Along with the names of the victims, the message continues, “Tomorrow this page will return to its steady purpose of offering our readers informed opinion about the world around them, that they might be better citizens.”
