gilatrout: Wikipedia problem meets MSM.
Feral_and_Preposterous: That happened long before this week.

vicejay: An important distinction that many of the great unwashed masses are not aware of:When you post to Facebook, it is not shared with 100% of your followers/friends/fans. That is, Facebook shares your post with a certain % of your 'friends' via an algorithmic that takes into account your interaction with them, similar interests, etc.When you post to Twitter, it is delivered to 100% of your followers.

Ed Willy: This becomes the scary part, because the media organizations can be held to account

S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: Imagine how much more free our country will be when our news comes from friends and neighbors on the spot instead of filtered sources controlled by capitalists.

Really.
Tozmo: I still have a mancrush on Sgt Fury. Without a police scanner, Fark would not have been awake all night following BPD track down bicyclists. And I would not have learned that BPD has a Sgt Fury who cleaned shiat up and got everyone on track
Ed Willy: This becomes the scary part, because the media organizations can be held to account (Fark you, CNN!), but the average person who starts a lie and misinformation, who leads a witchhunt will not be held to the same account. The people on a subreddit that tried to identify the bombers were defensive when other took their misinformed speculation as fact.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/17/boston-marathon-investigati on -reddit-detectives_n_3101126.htmlThe question is how as a society we balance the value created by technology (all the cameras and footage that was supplied as evidence) without the training and professionalism. There are few of us trained in police work outside of watching wholly unrealistic dramas. Few of us have the basics of journalism, asking question and inquiry.
