A few years ago, one story by a local Washington State reporter about
cohousing utilized interviews with people who had left cohousing communities
because of frustrations with slowness of decision-making, etc. While I don't 
think that stories should only have positives, at least  to me, that story 
seemed to emphasize the negatives way beyond their real significance for 
those who choose to stay in cohousing.

I think proceeding with caution with the media
is good advice, but I don't think Cohousing can be greatly
sensationalized. The worst they might do is drop the project when
they find out the common house isn't a bedroom. :-)

The best that could  happen is that the cohousing message gets out to
a lot more people, certainly a good thing.
