Журналистика и BBC

Много слышал о том, что якобы именно BBC является примером того, как поддерживать максимально высокие стандарты журналистики.

Сегодня во френдленте увидел линк на заметку русского сайта BBC -

На всякий случай проверил исходный, английский вариант заметки -

Итак, Jessica Lussenhop, обозначенная как "senior writer for BBC News", описывает некую криминальную историю так:

Lakeith Smith was 15 years old when he went along with four older friends on a burglary spree. A neighbour called police when the group went into a home in Millbrook, Alabama, and the responding officers surprised the teenagers as they were coming through the front door.

The group turned and fled out the back door, and a shootout ensued. When it was all over, 16-year-old A'Donte Washington was dead with a bullet wound to his neck.

То есть молодые люди просто спокойно выходили из чужого дома, увидели полицейских и побежали к заднему выходу. Почему-то сама собой из ничего возникла стрельба и один из молодых людей в итоге умер.

А вот как описывается та же история в местной газете:

Five people broke into two homes in Millbrook on Feb. 23, 2015. Smith was part of that group. Millbrook police officers responded to a call of a burglary in progress. One of the co-defendants began shooting at an officer as he entered the home. Testimony brought out that several of the co-defendants fired at the officer. The suspects left the home and ran into the backyard, still firing at the officer.

A’Donte Washington, 16, also of Montgomery, ran out of the backyard through a gate in the privacy fence. Police officer body camera footage played in court during Smith’s trial showed he was armed with a 38 cal. revolver. Washington ran toward another officer, pointing the gun at the officer, the footage shows. The officer fired his sidearm four times, striking and killing Washington.

Вот такая, понимаешь, журналистика. И такие, понимаешь, стандарты.
