Katie, what the hell are you doing??

Posted: February 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

Holy Crap!! Posts and tweets have been flying around the web all day claiming that Hosni Mubarak had stepped down. Apparently, Katie Couric was one of the first guilty parties (see The New York Daily News’ website) with her premature tweet, when in actuality, nothing of the sort had happened! And once more, our media “friends” in a desperate attempt to scoop their competition, jumped the gun and got it wrong–AGAIN!

My dad once taught me: “Don’t do it fast…do it right.” Makes sense to me because if you screw up and have to do something a second time, you lost any time gains you thought you had! And maybe…just maybe you won’t have to take your foot out of your mouth.

    That is the thing about today’s media, they have a HUGE blind spot for past mistakes.
