#NewsHourChats: The thing is, how many average twitter users take the time required to verify what they read?
RT @El_Skeptico: It's the Internet, anyone, anywhere can become an expert/analyst with a few keystrokes. People need to vet their sources. #NewsHourChats
#NewsHourChats: And with twitter, you shouldn't generally go backwards in the stream, so that makes news management even harder.
#NewsHourChats: Verification is hard even in traditional news. Even harder in #socialnews. Don't believe everything you read :-).

RT @SlimMissile: @NewsHour For better or worse, social media exposes us to images of war we usually don't see until years later. #NewsHourChats
