How many times have I scrolled down my timeline and noticed incorrect spelling, grammar or, arguably worse, incorrect news? When a breaking news story hits the web, the need for speed overtakes normally reputable news stations' values of accuracy. In order to utilize social media appropriately, a news source must identify that once a story is online, the value of accurately reporting on the topic will positively outweigh the consequences of 'first reporting' inaccurately.
The influence of the word "BREAKING" is like a disease- it is contagious and deadly to a solid reputation of accurate newsworthiness. Don't get caught- do your research and proofread. Your extra minutes of preparation will cost much less than an immediately visible error on your social media.
