What happens when a journalist forgets to be a journalist because they are online

I was working on a story about computer assisted technology and other bits of pieces when I came across this story.

Classic example of what can happen when journalists focus too much on speed and not enough on taking their time working with a story.

Checking facts, writing accurate balanced copy and verifying your news sources are still  the essential parts of  being a journalist. Especially in the online world where your audience will respond to any mistakes you make.
