Best Journalists: Peter Hermann And Justin Fenton

Though Baltimore’s persistently extreme crime problem may be a symptom of larger failures, such as family life, education, or the economy, it nonetheless tends to monopolize public discussion. This creates an insatiable demand for crime news: its occurrence and impact, its changes and trends, its perpetrators and victims, and those who work to stem it. The Sun’s Baltimore Crime Beat blog (, written by reporter Peter Hermann with contributions by Justin Fenton, meets this demand with rapid-fire, timely coverage that’s more likely than not the first place people can read about it. Sadly, crime in Baltimore calls for the kind of saturation coverage Hermann and Fenton give it. Thankfully, they do just that.
