Breaking news in the Twitter age

-Hey, guys. This is South Berry from Jay. Just calling in regards to the-- talked to you about the media coverage of the Boston Marathon stuff and first, obviously, you know, I feel sorry for those folks. Secondly, I was born and raised in Sandy Hook Connecticut, so kinda was close to one of these-- myself and I think part of the problem now is just that-- we watched articles get edited real time. It's a fact right now, 10 minutes from now, it's not a facts. And the other piece after the fact that I saw from the crown source standpoint is, everybody is way too much access to this information now and with all the pieces on the table. People can put together any story they want. -I think what he's trying to say and he brings of really good points and like I said, we learn so much this last week about how powerful and how dangerous the internet is. I think the big thing at least the way I see it. There's no delay anymore, right? We have reached that singularity where there's things happened and everyone knows about it in an almost instantaneous fashion. -Uh-hmm. Right. -So they-- nothing can be verified. Well, that's because citizens no information now before media [unk]. -Right. But nothing can be verified right away because it's instant. -Right. -Because everything is just-- so quick. There's no room for vetting-- -Yeah. -Whatsoever. Don't forget too, the competition-- again, these are businesses trying to make money. -Yeah. -The competition is so freaking hot and fierce that it's in the best interest of news entity from a financial point of view where we've disregarded integrity just to be the first to a news story. -Yeah. -They kind of go-- they kinda forego that vetting that used to be like Walter Cronkite all-time journalism and now they're just like, all right. We're gonna with this and gamble. -One of the crazy things that I saw yesterday on that find Boston bombers on Reddit was that someone posted a photo-- a second photo after the bomb blast that happened that showed the younger guy in the picture like sort of in the background. And it was only after the thread had reached 30-40 messages someone was like, wait, have you reported this to the FBI yet? -Right. -There's just so much information. It's too much for our own good because the world now has this consciousness online. -Right. -We're everything that happens in the real world is emulated in some-- in varying degrees of accuracy online. So like there's this constant almost parallel timeline that happens in the real-- it's-- I feel like-- I feel like I'm the goddamn Matrix. It's like the real world was real occupied and then the virtual world which like doesn't operate on the same octave, just like, it flows up and down-- -Right. It's much faster-- uh-hmm. -It's fast, it's-- it's very strange to live in that kind of, you know, the economy. -Right.
