    The biggest problem with news sourced from Social media is the cover of anonymity which most social networks provide to users – without credibility & face attached to it, all information should be treated as suspect. Although the nature of anonymity differs from platform to platform – on twitter it is very difficult to judge how ‘reliable’ the profile is on a cursory glance, while on networks which require thorough information for you to have a valid presence on it [like ApnaCircle, Viadeo, LinkedIn etc] it is that much difficult to fudge information. But all said and done, i agree when Mr Maddox say social media can’t replace good old fashioned journalists anytime soo.
