From ABC, to NBC to CBS and CNN, media outlets have been covering the Chris Dorner situation with furious attention today. However, when the flames erupted from a cabin in Big Bear, facts went out the window as fervor took over.
Surprisingly, only FoxNews — apparently intently focused on the State of the Union address at the time — managed to not erroneously report a body on twitter. They did however report on their website.
The LAPD had to set the record straight:
In a twitter world, a lie can literally make its way around the world before the truth even has a chance to tie its shoelaces (apologies to Mark Twain).
