    I'm glad to see that media and social media is helping to get the message out. We need a better warning system

    You're right - it was a mistake. Thank you for pointing it out. We will update and re-post.

    I agree with Kedar. You showed a clip from the Edmond, Oklahoma tornado that struck May 19th (the day before Moore) and another from a storm in a completely different state. I realize the story was about media coverage of disasters in general –with Moore being the most recent example– but how difficult would it have been to find two Moore sound bites in what must be hundreds of hours of archived material. Misleading, perhaps. Lazy, definitely!

    Why use a video clip of a Kansas tornado in your story about the recent Oklahoma tornado? Didn't any producer know Wichita and the TV station KSN are in Kansas, much less McConnell AFB
