The Coverage Of Fort Hood

Greenwald asks a question after reading Allahpundit's live-blogging of the news reports from Fort Hood yesterday:

Isn't it clear that anyone following all of that as it unfolded would have been more misinformed than informed?

The scale of the errors and misinformation was unusually high. The number of shooters and the actual fate of the prime suspect were both wrongly reported. Like Glenn I can see the benefits of live-blogging breaking news. We do it here all the time. But it seems to me that live-blogging speculation about news we don't yet know is a bit of a mug's game. I'm glad we took a breather and waited to see what actually happened.
