WGHP MyFox8: who needs the facts when you have us?

GREENSBORO, NC -- From a Greensboro Police Department press release describing the suspects in an armed robbery:
Suspect #1 (Driver) is described as a dark skinned black male, 6’, short hair, in his 20’s, tattoo, last seen wearing blue jeans.
Suspect #2 (Passenger) is described as a dark skinned black male, 6’2”, 210 pounds, short hair with waves on top, last seen wearing a white shirt and khaki pants.
Suspect #3 (Passenger) is described as a dark skinned black male, medium build, 5’10”, last seen wearing a red shirt and blue jeans.
From WGHP's regurgitation of the press release:
Ample suspect descriptions were not available.
I ask again, when we can subscribe by email, feeds and social media to official government announcements, what value do news outlets add when they regurgitate press releases but filter details?
