Check out Poynter’s collection of screen shots showing how different news outlets played the verdict. We want to see more depth in your team reports, but this should give you some ideas.

    This just shows that some news places don’t seek the truth but just put thier own spin on the things they write

    Throughout this entire article, the reporter keeps mentioning someone’s blog and I personally think that a blog is not a relable source for a reporter to get their information for his or her article. A blog is for personal use and shouldn’t be put in an article of this importance. Reporters need to distinguish the difference between what people believe to be a fact. It seems to be that some of this information is incorrect and I feel like someone can’t report something and then take it back. That’s what teenagers do with rumors in high school; it isn’t something that should happen as a professional journalist.
