Media, get it facts straight!

Posted: January 17, 2006 in News and politics

For this story to ring out on the first couple days of the new year, the workers’ tradegy in West Virginia had an happy ending – at first. But that happy ending had a worst nightmare. 12 out the 13 workers were claimed to be alive, but then the same workers were deceased. Only one of the workers was alive. Now, I know that everyone makes mistakes, even the media. Remember last year about the media annoucing the death of Pope John Paul II? At first they pronouced him dead, then alive, and dead again.
