It sounds like several news agencies opened themselves up to the possibility of lawsuits.

Pretty sad a group of people on a hockey board with online scanner feeds demolished the pro news.
the one thing that sticks out in my mind that makes me wonder about all of the quality of news reporting was the "over 9000 cops" thing that was tweeted and then CNN picked it up as a legit number and kept reporting it as fact...... seemed to me that that whole tweet was just a joke on the meme, and yet within a short period after reading that tweet as it was happening, all of the sudden CNN was reporting that number... makes one question a lot of reporting that goes on nowadays
