Twitter v. CNN: Round 2

Rick Sanchez of CNN responded to criticism from social media sites that the news organization failed to adequately cover the events after the Iranian election.

Not all youtube’s commenters seem convinced. However, others argue that CNN did a good job of covering the events in Iran.

An interesting debate, as social media muscles into journalism. Watch it:
