The Fog of News

[W]hen big news breaks, we instinctively look to CNN. We want CNN to be good, to be worthy of its moment. That impulse took a beating last week. On Wednesday at 1:45 p.m., the correspondent John King reported that a suspect had been arrested. It was a big scoop that turned out to be false.” 
—David Carr, media reporter,The Pressure to Be the TV News Leader Tarnishes a Big Brand,” The New York Times, April 21, 2013
