CNN Tweeted An Upworthy-Ish Headline, And It Really Didn't Go Down That Well On Twitter
What is the best way to report a terrible news story? Not like this.
CNN published a story on its website this morning about an 11-year-old Illinois girl who had been stabbed 40 times.
Because the sister, who called police, initially told officers an intruder was to blame for the attack, authorities briefly placed three schools on lockdown.The truth, when it emerged, was even more shocking.The 14-year-old, authorities say, repeatedly and fatally stabbed the victim — her half sister — with a kitchen knife because the teen thought she was ungrateful."This incident is a heartbreaking tragedy that defies understanding," said Mundelein Mayor Steve Lentz. "I am asking the Chicagoland area, please pray for us. Pray, first of all, for the family that has been devastated by this."
