In the age of globalization, journalists and social media sites, share an impeccable bond. Social media are the places to build credibility and well frankly money.

These two reputed journalists, both at the top of their game went head-to-head regarding authentic information of now former Leeds and Manchester City winger, Jack Harrison.

While it was known, Harrison who is suffering from an injury had a medical for a loan deal with Everton.

Fabrizio tweeted about Emery having a telephonic conversation with the winger successfully persuading him to join Villa. Villa was Harrison’s preferred choice, as per the tweet at the time of Fabrizio.

Ornstein put a tweet minutes after, that Harrison will be joining Everton, as is known. There are no cases of hijacks happening.

Fans were interested to see who among these two, cream-of-the-crop journalists, come out correct.

Indeed, it was Ornstein who was correct, with Fabrizio tweeting, Harrison’s injury dented Villa’s interest in him.

While Fabrizio might have had the wrong news source after a long time, fans made sure he is aware of Ornstein’s supremacy over him. Fans tweeted about Ornstein’s sources being more authentic and reliable.

Fabrizio tweeted in defense of Harrison’s deal reaching a stumbling block with Aston Villa. Romano’s defeat brought many sources of popcorn enjoyment for followers of both the journalists.
