Last Thursday morning, I was planning to go cover the G8 Summit at Camp David. Instead, I saw Aaron Worthing’s story, immediately recognized it as newsworthy and . . . well, God’s got a great sense of humor, doesn’t he?

In my effort to improve journalism in the United states in general and on CNN in particular let me offer this tidbit of info for the editors CNN via the Merriam Webster online Dictionary:
Definition of newsworthy
: interesting enough to the general public to warrant reporting
And in the interest in setting an example of using more than one source for a story, here is the definition from Dictionary.com
Now let’s use “newsworthy” in a sentence:
CNN’s misreporting of the date of an email to the Trump campaign in order to make it appear that that they were being offered documents from Wikileaks before they were released publicly and promoting this false narrative for hours on the air is a very newsworthy story.
I hope that this will be of use to the editors of CNN as an extra bonus tomorrow morning at DaTechGuy blog we will give an example of a newsworthy story that neither CNN nor the national press bothered to cover.
