    I’m forever being amused by the mistakes which news services make when first reporting some – even minor – catastrophe. That happened here. In the first news accounts, the woman was said to be dead, and presumptions were made that this was a terror attack. The wire services even added descriptions of the three recent assasinations, and implied that this was the fourth. Many other minor details were also wrong.

    Why would reporters make such mistakes? I think they want to be FIRST with the story, and in their opinion, speed is more important than accuracy.
