    Oh stop.

    They just reported what the families were told by people other than the media.

    Re: 12 Trapped W.Va. Miners Found Alive

    Apparently some dude who was not even part of the rescue operation overhead a miscommunication over the radio and thought he heard that 12 had survived.

    He was either a journalist wanting to be "first" to report this exclusive news (which makes him an moron) or he was just a plain moron.

    The media, being the morons they are jumped on this and started printing stuff and interviewing people. I think the whole culture of wanting an "exclusive" or being the "first" to report is the reason the media are such morons. There really should be laws to protect against them.

    No, it was not confirmed that it was the media. They do not realy know how or who started it:

    Probably just some m0r0n then... you don't need to be a genius to work out that kind of news in this situation requires careful verification before announcing it.

    To make things more crazy, I heard on the radio that the families of the deceased are now suing the mining company for the announcement!
