The last 24 hours have demonstrated a real lack of journalistic responsibility. It seems that in an effort to beat one another to "breaking news," outlets relied way too much on unnamed sources. If one outlet picks up a report from "an unnamed source," then another, then the third one (moving up the food chain to TSN and ESPN), everyone starts reporting on it. Who is checking on the original "solid source"? I won't point fingers at bloggers alone, but they present a great problem when they base their legitimacy on web site hits. How do they verify their "sources?" My guess is they probably don't. Any schmoe can email then and claim they are someone "in the know" and spew anything. The problem is when traditional journalists stop checking *their* sources and it snowballs. The last 24 hours should have been reported as straight fact: they got together to talk and nothing came of it. All those "news stories" were just rumors based on hearsay. Shame on TSN, ESPN and THN.
