Most news networks just rehash stories from the AP or Reuters.

Eh, if there's still internet to be had there's probably still time to run screaming into the hills if it's appropriate to do so.
There was an even better, longer, video of weather reporters reporting on an incoming hurricane... but I couldn't find it.  This is short and almost as good.

Big news networks, at least here in America, have shifted from doing actual journalism to primarily aggregating and regurgitating information from others.  Its seriously like getting your news off of Reddit/Tumblr/random blogs at this point.  The only real difference is that news networks have access to things like press releases and intentional leaks, and as a result of this access tend to be a little faster on the jump with certain stories but on the other hand are more restricted in what they can talk about.
This is saddening.

It has been determined that Trump is an average unladen swallow travelling northbound at his maximum sustainable speed of -3 Obama-cubits per second in the middle of a class 3 hurricane.

I kinda knew once CNN dropped 4chan's name in the story like it was Twitter, the level of fact checking was somewhere between 0 and -1.

Didn't they used to only even mention 4chan if anonymous had pulled off some sort of newsworthy shenanigans?

"Same difference" is dumb, but to have cake implies eating it. You can't eat a cake twice, which is why people can't have their cake (i.e. eat it) and then proceed to eat it too.
Oh, okay, that makes more sense, I took 'have' as you now own the/a cake, not that you ate it.
I always thought of it as "Have a piece of cake, and also have eaten said cake, while still owning said cake afterward in one whole piece."

This has actually happened before. Remember when (I think) /b/ manufactured a rumor about contaminated Doritos which turned into a national headline overnight?

No, this is them doin' good. Fuck the lazy sensationalist media that scrapes stories verbatim from the internet instead of being fuckin' journalists.

That works too. Also involves fewer people complaining about semantics.
