I was nursing a sprained ankle and watching "Saturday Night Live" when NBC broke in about Princess Diana dying. I really didn't believe it until Reuters, which is the European version of the Associated Press, confirmed it.
Sept. 11, 2001 is a good example of waiting to get more information before you act on a news flash. There was so much we didn't know, and so much that changed so quickly, you didn't know what to believe, so we chose not to believe anything until we had more confirmation. That's the only way to treat this kind of event. Don't listen to rumors and don't get hysterical. And don’t spread rumors, either.
