All of this is just a prime example of how terrible journalism is now. This is the same thing as a doctor removing the wrong testicle because he didn't read the chart. With twitter, a faster paced Facebook, ruling the world and everyone wanting their news NOW it was bound to come to this. Nobody does their research anymore. Everyone trusts their sources too much and low and behold, it bites them. And now the whole mass media world of today makes their elders that have come before them point and laugh in embarrassment.
