    The problem with digital content is that stories are often posted before being checked for accuracy or truth.  The online philosophy is that corrections and context can be published later (sometimes only minutes later) but real life does not work like that.  The public remembers the first story, which is often wrong.  I have been amazed by the number of ‘breaking stories’ that are really just unsubstantiated gossip, that have been followed later by the confirmed reports – but in my discussions with people it is the ‘breaking story’ that they remember.  Perhaps we shouldn’t be in such a hurry to get the news first – let’s rather get the news right.
