People Are Panicking About Toilet Paper And The Media Is Not Helping – Cameron Wilson – March 4 2020 – Buzzfeed News
This article covers Australian news outlets posting about the public panic-buying toilet paper. The focus of the article is the lack of information the news outlets include about there being no need to panic buy. The article is relatively brief and does a solid amount of research regarding Australian news outlets and their publications of the issue. The article also includes tweets from the public.
Part of my concern with the article is the lack of proof provided. While Buzzfeed News is a credible source, and it does appear that the research is solid, I would have really liked more hyperlinks to specific articles from news outlets and screenshots of posts to prove the point. The article includes only one screenshot of a 7News Facebook post, compared to the four tweets from personal profiles. Some of the links included are to the same 7News Facebook post and the accompanying article, another 7News article, and an article from the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Including more articles showing the lack information included in them, or even screenshots of these, would hone the point much better. Additionally, including articles/research of the need to not panic-buy would also help to prove their point.
