Social media has an important impact on journalism and this is bringing some credibility issues to the sources. Now the real question is not about the news information that is present on social media websites in the form of tweets or status. The real question is about the credibility of the journalist (Anon, 2013). News breaking for today is about a man who has been shot by the police officer in North Charleston. This video footage has been provided to New York time and they have posted this on their website. Now the question is why would that police officer kills a man who was unarmed and right in the middle of the traffic. The question still becomes the debate but we have covered some other aspects of the story that will be covered in the next part of this post. It is about the credibility of the news because the story is all over the internet and this is becoming common today (Anon, 2015). People post videos on the internet without confirming about the truthfulness of the news and then people follow it blindly.
This potage of the man killed on his back needs to be viewed by people all around the country but the news channel is not letting me post the video. Now it is important to note that this video should be posted on personal account of twitter. The main reason for posting this video is the baffle behind this shooting and why that man was killed. If this news goes on internet, it will go viral. This will put lot of pressure on the police and they will start investigating on the case. Their hesitation will stop and they will start on working on this case because of the pressure coming in from social networking sites.
