Q13 News Director Resigns After Allegations Station Supressed Video Of SPD Stomping

From the PI.com:

The Q13 Fox news director who apologized for taking too long to air a video of suspected police brutality resigned Thursday morning, staff said.

The video offered first to Q13 only to be aired on KIRO/7 has created an outrage in Seattle, prompted an FBI investigation and caught the attention of the nation.

Station officials did not immediately give reasons for the resignation of Steve Kraycik, who did not return a telephone call or e-mail asking for comment. A native of Allentown, Pa., Kraycik was a 1985 graduate of Kutztown University of Pennsylvania with a telecommunications focus.

The videographer who took the footage, Jud Morris, told seattlepi.com and several other news outlets that he believes Q13 Fox did not run the video because of a close relationship with police and its show “Washington’s Most Wanted.” He called the show “their moneymaker.”

“They told me the next Monday they weren’t going to run it,” Morris told seattlepi.com Friday. “I said, ‘You guys are insane.'”
