Journalism is dead

Posted By on Thu, Aug 21, 2008 at 8:59 AM

Today, I received a breaking news alert from CNN stating that Congresswoman Stephanie Jones Tubbs had died. I checked Bloomberg News and The Cleveland Plain Dealer, which said the same thing. Ten minutes later, they went back to stating that she is in critical condition. So, which is it? It is a sad time when you cannot trust any "reputable" media outlets. The "scandalous" papers are now breaking news faster and more accurately — John Edwards anyone? Who can we trust? Are accuracy and journalism mutually exclusive? I bet Ms. Jones Tubbs family thinks so.
