I sold my first outdoor story in 1959. I have been around the reporting game a long time. Never, ever, have I seen such sloppy reporting as I have regarding the Boston bombing. It is just deplorable. CNN is the absolute worst!

Do they not teach anything in J-school anymore?

Accuracy is not as important as getting out there early and framing the story in a way that can benefit their agenda.

Reporting of news is gone like the Dinosaur. Exploiting the news is where the money is today

Accuracy is no longer required. As long as you put out your station/publication's view of the events out first you win.

When live in a world where it's about being the first to release information, whether it's right or wrong. Must be a cnn "EXCLUSIVE".

NO. What they do teach is how to convey the writers opinion into a story in order to sway or form the reader/viewers opinion.

Several years back a study was done with outcoming journalism students. I wish I could find the study for accuracy of years but the graduates were asked in a survey what they hoped to achieve with thier careers. Up until the early 70's most replied something like "to be able to report a story with accuracy".

Well from the 70's on, their answers changed to something like "to be able to change the worlds views with subject matter".

The parallel to this is the time frame of when universities became indoctrination tanks rather than facilities of higher learming. Accuracy and professionalism in journalsim is gone.

The media reports "false opinion" Sandy Hook was a prime example of false information. Now the crappy reporting on the Boston bombings..geez bunch of idiots.
