POST by Nancy Heins-Glaser. It's unfortunate that PATCH's caption reads the way it does but its fairly routine to see captioned titles that not only DONT REFLECT an article's content, but paint a confusing image of the content in what seems to be brevity for brevity's sake" that must have gotten past the editorial review board. This header seems to state that Seton Hall has the most homicides in New Jersey by its positioning in New Jersey's highest homicide rates. ONE COULD THINK ITS INTENDED TO BE STATED THIS WAY ON PURPOSE, IF ONE WERE INCLINED. ARE THEY EVEN CONNECTED THESE TOP NEWS STORIES? The murderer of a college student at an off campus party being sentenced is big news and students can give a sigh of relief. Though the student attended Seton Hall, this murder did not happen there - either in Newark OR South Orange campuses. The murderer wasn't from Seton Hall either. The real story seems to be the social media posting of the off campus party being held. Is this part of the story at all? Except for student attending SHU the life sentence of the murdered has nothing to do with SHU. Yet at the time of the murder, news media featured the breaking news from the front gate of the main SHU campus? WHY? It seemed odd at the time. Yet, today's "cloudy reportage" has me thinking another direction -- is this intended to communicate something else? But what? As a former South Orange resident and SHU alum, this seems misleading, yes, but most importantly the murky commentary exemplifies what ails on line "news" and we in the US have come to accept this. Seton Hall's outstanding programs get lost in this completely. The Masters level Muesum Studies programs and first ever of its kind hyper-local journalism curricula to name just two. IT is what we have come to accept in the hyper-speed "news" on steroids world it seems. Can anyone in the alternative press or PLACEnj.com or NJ.com come up with a different caption than this please "Most Homicides in NJ, Seton Hall Killer Gets Life, Wrestler's Wild Actions Top State News. " THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
