Caution when consuming media

Breaking News Consumer's Handbook

Summary

On The Media released a handbook for how to treat media reports, particularly during and immediately following a major event. The release was last year, but the information is just as important today and in the future. Point 9 is quite important, but I think could go further. You are part of the social media and are responsible for what you post. Take care when linking to or quoting an article. When you post to something that turns out to be wrong, your credibility is harmed. If you are unsure of a report but feel it is worth posting, say so explicitly. Good communication is everything.
