Kyron Horman's parents have received more media coverage in the last four weeks than most people would get in a lifetime. It's been a month since their seven-year-old boy disappeared outside of his Portland elementary school. And each passing day seems to bring a new twist to their unfortunate story. But the Hormans are apparently unhappy with how some media outlets are, or aren't, covering the search for the missing second-grader.
The Oregonianreports that it and The Willamette Weekly were barred from a closed-door meeting between the Hormans and a dozen other journalists because the family said the papers had focused too much on their personal history, rather than on the search for Kyron.
The Hormans are upset because the news coverage surrounding their son's disappearance has centered on Kyron's stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman. But that's hardly the fault of the papers.
The family clearly thinks Moulton Horman has something to do with Kyron's disappearance -- in the video below, you can see Kyron's mother Desiree Young imploring her to fully cooperate with police. They can't expect newspapers to ignore a story they're providing them.
