http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04/25/sunil_tripathi_reddit_suspect_dead/ The article linked points the finger at crowdsourcing as the guilty party for the accusation. I think that is ludicrous. All the 'crowd' did was review material. The failure lies squarely with media sources using the output as newsworthy fact. ~~ Full disclosure, I am a fan of 'old' journalism conducted by professionals in a 1in24hr atmosphere. The news the public needs in order to be informed and engaged in the democratic system is (I believe) on this pattern. A rolling blanket of sensation 24hr 'news' is just noise. It is worse than no news.
