This week we introduce a new website feature, Covering National News, which is a place for CQS journalists to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the national breaking-news stories they are working on. We begin the feature with three essays from CQS alums who had a hand in covering the devastation in West, Texas, and Boston last week.
April 15 started a week of devastating news for Americans, and Chipsters describe their roles in coverage for their papers.
