Hmm. Good thing BBC had a "man on the ground" to relay wire service news! Reuter's explanation of how it came to know in advance made me laugh. Got it from a local story. He did it. She did it. I think when you report, in advance, that a 47-story building collapsed - in an area where (assuming a building not hit could collapse, no less so quickly) it might have been ANY nearby building, or maybe ALL the nearby buildings!, um, I think someone must have had... "a tip."
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
