Boston Marathon Bombings: Believing too much in social networks & media (Part 2 of 2)
PART 2: Here is the second article on the subject matter, this one is from CBC News (see my last post for the article from the Globe and Mail)
What do you think of the media coverage of Boston?
Peter Mansbridge April 19, 2013 2:10 PM
This has been an amazing few days of "live" television coverage on all networks concerning a number of different stories, but nothing as intense as the various elements of the "Boston Marathon Bombings."
So now here's your chance to weigh in, hopefully in a constructive way, about how all of us do our jobs. Give us two examples of what you've seen, heard or read on the Boston story.
We want to know what you consider to be the best piece of journalism you've noticed and why, as well as the worst and why.
Remember the idea here is to add value, not to take cheap shots, so there's no need to make it personal.
Go for it in the comments section and we'll feature the best responses next week.
As a sample of the reaction to the coverage online, here (shown above) are a couple of comics that caught our eye!
