ROSEBUD COMMENTARY: The Grinning Covington Kid
When social media explodes on a topic, especially a politcally-charged topic, it has great influence on the cable news talk shows and news media decision makers, who too often talk before they know everything. The events surrounding the Covington, Kentucky high school students visiting Washington, D.C. is just the latest example as Larry Mendte observes, as many practicing journalists gave their opinions without waiting for the facts.
