On The Media – The Breaking News Consumer’s Handbook

See on Scoop.itDidYouCheckFirst

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>

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
