Reporting Breaking News

Last week CBC in Canada reported on a shooting in without speculation, or all caps graphics, or multiple screens with “Experts” guessing what was going to happen next. They reported accurate information in a professional manner, something that isn’t often seen in today’s news. Now a day’s ratings and competition from other news sources and social media sites has created a race to report news first, and being first usually means not checking facts, and getting information wrong.
