This week saw another breaking news event, the DC Navy Yard shooting, misreported by the press. Usually, we take time to point out how the media got it wrong and how they can do better next time.
We have a responsibility to understand how uncertain and downright wrong the news media – and we! – can be. This On The Media report is tremendously helpful and enlightening. Let’s all be better listeners and let’s not become part of the problem of bad information, misinformation, and outright lies. <GR>
