"Run With It"

Say you are the editor or publisher of a newspaper. You get a story off the wires that sounds wonderful. Do you make any effort to check the accuracy of the story? Make a phone call or send an email? Or do you just regurgitate what was fed to you?

That's what I thought. The headlines on today's Winston Salem Urinal:

"'Miracle' Happens. Twelve miners survive after 41 hours trapped"

I'm sorry, folks, but to me this is flat shameful and disgusting.
