Document the documents

This is an appeal to due authorities & interested parties, television & radio stations, printed & online media everywhere: Please time- & place-stamp all the material you produce, air, publish or otherwise use as facts in news and documentaries.

I am tired of wondering "where and when did that happen?", "where and when was this recorded?" & "where and when was that picture taken?".

I ask of everyone involved to help establish transparency and better documentation in the news business. It certainly is not that difficult, with the digital technology in use today...
