NPR's Coverage of the Kitty Genovese Story

Picking up on my previous post....

This report focuses on how the crime helped create the 911 emergency system and also discusses how the multiple inaccuracies in The NY Times articles about the murder led to a widely believed account that was extremely different from what really happened. The Times coverage wrongly described the neighbors as apathetic to a horrific murder taking place right outside their doors, when, in fact, many of these neighbors did respond to the victim's pleas for help and did what they could to help her.
