I don't know, the news channels seem to be doing a decent job.

They say he noticed blood on the ground near the boat. That is the point I would have gone back into my house! Apparently this guy went and looked under the tarp on the boat...

Sometime after 6pm there, after they had lifted the lock down instruction.

What I do know is that the news channels make a great deal of reference to social media such as Twitter. The sheer range of different types of people who use it make for, in the main, a very credible source.
The use of Twitter etc to share in this type of situation is the way things are going.

the news was well behind and way out for most of the day....i found much more info using police scanner channels and cruising a few us forums. cross reffign to forums helped weed out the rubbish.

What is the news? The channels I refer to were live at the scene. Twitter was as full of inaccurate speculation as usual, as well as some good info.

Twitter is merely an unregulated channel.

Were journalists and broadcasters to act like Twitter gossip and rumour would, in the main, replace verified news.

I still have some belief in trained news staff working out fact from fiction before publishing, regardless of a number of them getting it wrong.

Yeah that is paradoxical 8) . I wonder if bullets cause more injury than scaldings. :P
