This is from some years ago, but it is still a much needed reminder about the necessity of "slow news" in the light of today's despicable attacks: "the closer the information is in time to the actual event, the more I assume it's unreliable if not false" - Toward a Slow-News Movement /by Dan Gillmor
I don't think I would ever want to go back to slow news. But my stream of posts today probably gave that away already.
Oh, I don't think it's intended as an "instant news vs slow news" angle, more as a thinking piece about how they can complement and enrich each other (my take anyway)
