The Twitterization of the News

Over the past three days I've been discussing on my radio show how it is that the entire nation has come to believe, erroneously, that an Arizona legislator has called for and is pushing a law to make church attendance mandatory.  The story went from one politician's tweet to headlines within mainstream media news reports at the speed of light.  Today I wrote a piece for the Radio Television Digital News Association about how this happened, and what it says about how Twitter values have caused mainstream journalists to lose their minds.   You can find that article here.
