20100307_045700_orloske1_200.jpgThe younger brother, Eric John Orloske who killed his older brother, really regretted what he did. Last Saturday, the drunken brothers and one of his friends were planning for motorcycle trip, and the brothers started playing wrestling breaking the items in the house. Other friends left, but they were concerned about the brothers because they were drunk. When they came back, the older brother died, and Eric Orloske was nowhere. However, soon, he appeared drunk again and arrested. Even though Eric did not kill his brother on purpose, his feeling at the moment could not protect his brother.

[The Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press dealt the same articles. However, the Pioneer Press did not update new information, but it shows that how many similar crimes like this happened in St.Paul, while the Star Tribune updated new information as well as attributed]

FBI arrested the man, 47-year-old Ivan Wayne Tencate, for distributing child porn in a public coffee shop in downtown Minneapolis Thursday.
According to the Star Tribune E.K. Wilson, FBI Special Agent, undercover FBI agents made contact with Tencate, who was using the screen name "iten 10" and sharing child pornography using a wireless IP address associated with a coffee shop on 3rd Avenue S. in Minneapolis. Subsequent surveillance identified the user as Tencate, the FBI said.
After he was arrested, he was ordered held pending a detention hearing.
Even though the WCCO deal with the similar article, it lacked of detailed explanation. For example, the StarTribune represented "undercover FBI agents made contact with...", but WCCO represented "the FBI said agents made contact with an individual using the screen name "iten10." This trivial word choice can make people easily understandable. Therefore, the media should choose each word carefully.
