A Note to Bloggers, Check Your facts!!!!!!!

So, Yesterday no one could find Charlie Bereal of the Soul Seekers. Everyone on the internet was blogging and twittering and facebooking about this. Well, for some reason there are still blogs reporting that he is missing when in fact he was found last night. The Unconfirmed story is that he was found in an hospital in Harlem. I’m not sure how true this is  but either way God is Good.

The real point of this post is to show how many bloggers are great writer but not good fact checkers. I have to give myself a slap on the wrist because I almost posted a story saying he was still missing myself until I decided to do a little digging (thanks twitter). Asa blogger of news and current events, it is our responsibility to keep up on whats happening on a hour to hour basis. Especially something like a missing person. My challenge to myself and to other bloggers is to stop being lazy and put in work doing research and fact checking before we post/write/report anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!
