In which Italian courts confuse the British media

Two versions of the Guardian live-updates page (yay for immediate self-correcting journalism!)

These are/were both to be found at the same link: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/2011/oct/03/amanda-knox-appeal-hearing-live.  Except I somehow ended up with it open in two tabs, one with live updating on and one with live updating off. So I have ended up with two updates, saying completely different things. HURRAH. I know what is going on now. 

I feel like not-offering judgements and opinions about the dangers of live-update journalism, given that I was watching for the verdict and get quite a lot of my news stories through the wonder of twitter. But still… Suddenly I’m happy that the BBC waited for the full verdict to be delivered.
