At 10:30 p.m. on April 18, 2013, Paul Berton, Editor-in-Chief of the Hamilton Spectator, was wondering whether to include a victim impact statement along with the story planned for the following day’s paper. Julie Daly, wife of murder victim John Daly, had made the compelling statement that day in court, preceding the sentencing of her husband’s killer. But a report of the sentencing and a transcript of Julie’s statement published on thespec.com that same afternoon prompted Julie to call the city editor, Carla Ammerata, and ask that the story and transcript be removed to protect her privacy. Carla, unsure what to do, called Paul to ask how to proceed. Paul needed to decide quickly whether the story should go out as planned or not.
