Found on Twitter from Stephanie Berzinski at ABC25/WPBF: the #lakeworth page (hashtag Lake Worth)

Note that the shooting by a PBSO deputy on July 30th did not occur in Lake Worth as reported by Stephanie Berzinski. Chris Stewart at Fox29/WFLX and NBC5/WPTV correctly reported the incident as "suburban Lake Worth". Note the Tweets below with the incorrect location:
There are other Tweets using the #LakeWorth hashtag that serve only to confuse the public should they happen on this page. My question is this: why isn't the City of Lake Worth correcting this misinformation? Why aren't they sending out press releases or calling news directors to get this kind of misreporting corrected?

Here are two resources (here and here) for the media on what is the City of Lake Worth and what that vast area out west is called suburban Lake Worth.
