Our thoughts on covering Westboro Baptist Church, if they protest in Aurora #theatershooting

Some of you have tweeted me asking if Westboro Baptist Church is coming to Colorado to protest after the theater shootings. Viewers have called the newsroom asking the same.

Newspaper articles online and social media posts indicate that may be true.

I hope this blog helps explain our coverage decision and does nothing more.

For the most part we don’t cover Westboro Baptist Church protests when they come to Colorado. They have been before and only rarely have we covered them.

Should something newsworthy happen while they are here, you can be assured 9NEWS will keep you informed.

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.
