Meteor journalism

Last night, the social media and internet world of fast reporters beat the major mainstreamers once again. The meteor that lit up the East Coast wasn’t mentioned on CNN, NBC, FOX, or others.. it wasn’t reported on the front pages of CNN’s website or other big media outlets.. Instead, Twitter and Tumblr lit up, along with thousands of websites immediately began reporting about the meteor.. And what happened next? A media scramble trying to keep up.

Good job internet world.
And they wonder why the old media is dying..
