I don't understand because I'm not wired to think the worst. Sorry. Moreover, I was not going to follow up with a tweet saying that nobody died because I never said anybody died. As I said, it's not my fault that some people would let their minds race in ridiculous directions.
Moreover, I didn't tweet a report Saturday night. I tweeted that I was trying to confirm a devastating report. I had confirmed it already that night, but I wanted to have another source to confirm it. Although my source was 100 percent trust worthy, as proved to be the case when I broke the story in the morning, the source wouldn't go on the record, which is why I waited until I had a second source.
As a professional, I waited to get two sources. I will never report anything without two sources or one credible source going on the record. As soon as I had a second source, I ran with the story. That's what journalism is. Don't confuse Twitter for journalism. Surely fans had to realize that if somebody had died other St. Louis journalists would have tweeted it.
I hope I've explained this now.
