A BALTIMORE TELEVISION station reported on Black Friday events and accidentally put "Black Holiday Shoppers" in the lower-third (rather than labeling them as "Black Friday Shoppers").
Does the newscast have a responsibility to apologize to their audience?
In the age of the Internet, when information is old news in a matter of moments, do the media have to have every fact immediately correct? Or, as a society, have we just accepted that what we learn from the media may or may not be true?
Is that a problem?
How would you handle the Black Friday mistake - or better yet, this incredible story?
