The crime scene

18 November 2014, 13:41 Jibunor George Chuks

Most people have the crazes idea of how they always wished and hoped things would've have looked like. When everyone gathered at the crime scene, asking for information on how the incident happened is a dicey one. The person sourcing for the information should be ready to hear different stories, this actually calls for the optimum wisdom from him or her in other to curtain the information which he or she seeks. Many people could paint the story to favour them, while many could say it on how they have felt it happened without getting the full detail on what actually happened.

The reporter might not be happy with the type of information gotten. Then we could now imagine what he or she will turn the story into. This implies on how many News agencies source for their news. Many propagate's false story in other to sell and make name without considering the outcome and the effect of the story they spread around. Just as some of the readers of this article could say; what direction is this writer heading to, and what is he saying. Many picks up serious quarrel on the social media because of what others commented. But why could this be, because everyone thinks that he or she is the 'Right' no one wants to listen to anybody, but we forget that when everyone feels that they are all right at the same time, that's when we can never get it right. God bless.
