Social Media in the Newsroom

Watching the news drives me crazy – well, maybe not the whole time, but typically when they have those news stories that are the filler stories.  You know – dancing cats or lasagna recipes – that’s not news.

What drives me even more bonkers is when the news uses social media to get it’s news.  They’ll report what they saw on Twitter and that’s news.  Really?  Have you seen it?  But I keep watching.  I’m definitely following news on social media – it’s much faster and it’s where the news gets their —- news.
