This annual event features three panelists who have repeatedly made both local and national headlines in recent years, and 2011 was no exception.
They are San Diego Chargers special counsel Mark Fabiani, San Diego Police Department Chief William Lansdowne, and Carrie McGonigle, mother of slain Escondido teenager Amber Dubois.

Join us as these people grade the media on its coverage this year. Fabiani will talk about the media’s portrayal of the Chargers’ quest for a new stadium. Lansdowne will talk about issues of misconduct and morale within his police department. McGonigle will talk about the news coverage of her missing daughter and the man who murdered her as well as her amazing discovery in northern California in September of a missing girl’s remains.
