Life happens fast. Truth happens slow. Trust, well that’s a rare thing. Combining life, truth and trust is apparently an impossibility, especially when it comes to news today that’s shared on social media.

When the staff and reporters of CU Times create content that we share on our site and in our print issues, those stories make it into our social media feeds. It’s pretty straightforward. When it comes to breaking news, we do two things: We speed up and slow down at the same time. What I mean here is by speeding up, we jump on the story. By slowing down, we stop and think and check the details before getting out the first version of the story. Sure, we’d like to be first with the news. But more importantly, we want to be right. After that happens, we follow up with more details and facts to add to the story to give to you, and then we post those updates on social media. That’s the process.
