I agree with you. Again, like I said, I don't blame Zack for what he did. He did his job. I'm just throwing out the conversation as to whether or not he SHOULD HAVE or NOT. There is never a right answer to anything I write...this was and will always be to stir discussion.
Again, I agree with your point. I consider myself pretty close to Zack, and I didn't write this to bash him, I wrote it to set-up another side of the story and to create discussion.
It's an interesting discussion to have. I think there would have to be a major shift in the way news works for the idea of "first" to not be important.
