Commentary: Attorney's tactics against Medill's Innocence Project hint at intimidation

Anthony McKinney got a life sentence for running down a Chicago street. But the Medill Innocence Project, which gives journalism students at Northwestern University real world experience in investigative reporting, found evidence to prove him innocent in the murder of security guard Donald Lundahl.

She's trying to kill the messenger.
