Educating the public ... but don't tell them the wrong info

The Belgian media is covering the Wikileaks story like in every other country. One of the things on our national television news website that caught my attention was the spectacular title "IT Security Expert: Cyber war is actually very simple".

You can't hear the question to the IT security specialist but what he basically explains is a DDoS attack. What he explains is correct but I am quite disappointed in the journalist. I personally think that it is a good thing to make the public aware of what is happening in the world and how attacks are carried out but choosing this title was over the top.
