Go, Read: Cartoonist Matt Bors On Facebook Detectives, Journalistic Malfeasance And On-Line Culture

There's a fascinating story involving the talented cartoonist Matt Bors that's told by Bors here and through Michael Cavna here that is well worth your time if you spend as much energy invested in on-line social media that checking out this site indicates you might.

I don't have much to add but I of course believe there's a massive responsibility on all of us as journalists to back away from rushing stories out there. I also think there's an equally important task that falls to us as readers to read these stories as intended when there are qualifiers -- we're sophisticated enough to do this in the vast majority of cases, but we have to make that choice.
