I absolutely love this parody video of CNN News covering the Boston bombing.
It’s quite ridiculous and degrading for news outlets to chase stories without real facts and information just for the sake of appearing like they know what’s going on so people will tune in.
Journalism is tested the most during times of crisis and tragedy but when reporters fail to live up to their ethical and professional standards and harm innocent people, it only makes it that much harder to maintain credibility the rest of the time. It also spread ignorance and sensationalism, when what we need most in understanding the story behind the Boston bombing and the suspects, is logic and commonsense.
Better to have the facts and be late, then be first with all the errors.
