Accuracy in Media

From Task and Purpose:

Erling Kindem, a World War II veteran whose friendship with a local boy went viral after a local TV news station aired a story about the pair, died Saturday.

Kindem, 91, died at the senior care facility in Farmington where he lived, according to KARE-11 TV.

KARE 11’s Boyd Huppert and Jonathan Malat produced a popular series of stories about Erling and his pre-school neighbor Emmett Rychner over the past few years. “They kind of bonded over the tomatoes in his garden,” Emmett’s mom told KARE 11. “Because Emmett loves tomatoes.”
