A Q&A with a ‘Daily News’ Crime Reporter

The Awl interviews Daily News reporter Kerry Burke (a Sweetwater alum):

I deal in other people’s agony. I do. You can’t candy coat that. But if you can’t live with that, you shouldn’t be in this game. I’m not some nice person from a nice place. I’m not. I do my damndest to be a decent man and an honest reporter.

He hasn’t changed, either.
