Be careful with online war rumors

CBS MarketWatch executive editor David Callaway says war rumors breathlessly reported on the Internet have been picked up by television, radio, and newspapers. “As America prays for the safety of our troops and the Iraqi people, the media bears a responsibility now more than ever not to sensationalize events or run with shaky reports,” Callaway says. “It’s a tall order. But in war, there’s no other kind.”
