Dear News Sources

Dear News Sources,

Twitter is not a news source that you should refer to, just as Wikipedia is not an encyclopedia that you should take as facts.

Social Media, Not News Media

It’s the dumb leading the dumb when supposedly “legitimate” news sources quote what are essentially public bulletin boards.

Please hold yourself to higher standards.

Sincerely,

 

Rachel L. Arbeit
