Station learns consequences of taking photos from Facebook

A TV station in San Francisco is learning a lesson many stations have had to learn about the risks that come with taking photos from Facebook.

KTVU-TV published the photo of a stabbing victim holding what appeared to be a gun. It turned out that it was not a gun.

This article from Poynter said the station apologized and explained the reasons for the outrage.

Read up and be careful not to make the same mistake.
