When a local story becomes fodder for a nonstop gabfest on cable television, how do you keep your newsroom focused on the real story? Editor Mark Russell and the staff of the Orlando Sentinel have found themselves in just such a situation with Caylee Anthony's disappearance and the trial of her mother, Casey, on murder charges. Russell and digital editor John Cutter lead this discussion of how a combination of old-fashioned reporting, social media, live chats and continuous updates have helped the Sentinel drive audience on a story that is literally unfolding outside the newsroom's front door.
