Court rules nasty comments are a news site's responsibility | Internet ... | The media | Scoop.it
After threatening comments are made on a popular Estonian news site's article, a European court decides the site has to deal with the consequences. Read this article by Dara Kerr on CNET News.
BenSpilman's insight:

I had to scoop this after our discussion in class the other day.  Courts are beggining to hold websites responsible for the content that is posted by commentors anonymous or not. vInteresting read.

Woman in DC chase may have thought Obama was ... - NBC News | The media | Scoop.it
The woman who led authorities on a chase from the White House to the Capitol before she was killed by police may have thought that President Barack Obama was stalking her, law enforcement sources told NBC News.
BenSpilman's insight:

Miriam Carey, the woman who was shot and killed in Washington D.C after she led authorities on a car chase from The White House to The Capital. Evidence suggests that the woman was deranged at the time of her death (obviously) and thought that Barack Obama… Our Nation’s president was stalking her.  The NSA and the government may be keeping a close eye on our transactions and conversations but i sure hope the hysteria doesn’t reach a point where more people our nation’s leader is personally stalking them.  Yikes.
