Bad journalism this evening

This evening we've witnessed very bad journalism.

CNN announced that Mubarak would step down. They has a truster source...

Well, we've all seen that the guy didn't step down at all.

As a reaction we got that there had been some miscommunication.


Is this an example of "journalism 2011"?

Why on earth risk bringing false hope to almost a complete country?

Why not check the message of your informer?
Why not translate properly what he says?

Or was CNN too eager to be the first to bring the news?

I value the attitude of the BBC who clearly stated that it was too early to draw any conclusions from the fact that Mubarak would adress the egyptians on TV.

Some journalists are now turning and turning to talk their mistakes in the right direction.

All I have to say is that the media should follow and report, not create news.
