After the stabbing at a Rabbi's house last night, a writer whose work has appeared in many outlets posted a tweet which acknowledges that at the time of the tweet it was not known who the perpetrator of the crime was.
Although there is now a man under arrest for the crime, he has not been tried in a court of law and therefore it is possible (although it seems highly unlikely) that it will turn out that the wrong man was arrested. (But, I doubt it.)
The problem with the tweet was that it implied a motivation for the crime that doesn't fit the suspect. The reason that I state that it implies a motivation is because it makes reference to something which is identified which the writer calls "our shared enemy."
The writer has apparently since closed their account because twitter says that the account does not exist.
The point of this is that our society has created a culture in which the desire for news and the desire to publish the news has caused an environment in which much of what is published is later found to be bogus.
Science News reports on uncorroborated claims by a single scientist or a single team of scientists before there has been any peer review or attempts by other scientist to duplicate the experiments.
Political news tries to predict elections and has on numerous occasions been flat out wrong.
People start spreading anger around social media as soon as one person claims that another person or business did something prejudiced and later it transpires that the claims of the original complainer don't match the evidence or the eye-witnesses.
He that giveth answer before he heareth, It is folly and confusion unto him. (Tanakh 1917 translation)
We desperately need to slow down and wait for the facts to transpire before we jump to conclusions.
