Interesting question here: What does the mainstream media do when a citizen breaks news first on social media?

In this case, I don't think the AP stole the information and didn't credit it to the niece of Whitney Houston's hairstylist, but media should credit citizens when it does take from them — when they're right (and the media has verified the story itself).

Your thoughts? (Link via +William Doskoch)
