    I have clients and associates that would find the article helpful. Is it ok to forward the article without getting into trouble? Usually the articles are sent out to the public as a newsletter or an rss feed. I am not changing it or hiding the author, simple sending and saying "this might be of interest to you.".

    naturally like your website but you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to tell the truth then again I will surely come back again.

    This was an important topic and a valuable look at Twitter-fueled pressures to post quickly. One weakness with this segment's review of the premature death of Congressman Young was the failure to explore a couple of things: a.) assuming Peter Schorsch's report was the sound that started the stampede, what was the appropriateness of his reliance on two distant family relations (how distant?) and what was their source, and b.) what were the sources for NBC and Fox reports? I was disappointed you did not probe further into the phenomenon of what I suspect happened - that reporters were simply repeating what other reporters were saying without attribution. I don't mean re-tweeting, but original unattributed reports such as Chuck Todd's post or Greta Sustern's report. Few useful lessons learned from this Reliable Sources treatment, but thanks for examining the topic.
