    A lot of people blame the media for the Sago mine disaster, and rightly so. The reporters should get the story right the first time. There is no excuse for jumping the gun, especially if the lives of people and there families are involved. The competition between the big time news stations and papers to get the story first to often interferes with getting the story right. Those news stations and papers how waited tell they confirmed the story at the expense of a scoop are a good example of proper journalism. In the news climate of today with everybody attempting to out scoop each other it is surprising to me that this kind of thing doesn’t happen more often. I also believe that there is another party involved. We the people are just as guilty for the state of are current media. We support this type of journalism by watching the stations and buying the papers. If we did not consume this form of media it would not be on TV or the news stand.
