MSM has-been Morley Safer on New Media
#1
Octogenarian tool lamenting the collapse of MSM hold on truth by criticizing the rise of the Citizen Journalist. Guess they dont like having their lies questioned.

Quote:Brian Lamb: Reaction, sir.

Morley Safer: Appalled. I'm appalled! I mean I don't know quite if she thinks this is a good idea? Uh...

Lamb: Uh, no, she does.

Safer: She does think it's a good idea.

Lamb: Yeah

Safer: I think it's a dreadful idea. I mean, journalism, good journalism, good reporting must work within the constraints of great editing. It has to.

I got in trouble a couple of years ago. I was making a speech, I got some award in Canada, and I was talking about the so-called citizen journalism. And I said I would trust citizen journalism as much as I would trust a citizen surgeon.

You need to work within discipline, within certain disciplines. And, uh, I think the Matt Drudges and these and many of these others give the real thing a very bad name. Because now everybody's on the Internet. I mean, and, one of the problems I have with the Internet in terms of reading... everything looks as valid as The New York Times. Whether it's the typeface, the way its been set up. So, whether you're reading some, somebody who, you know, believes aliens are out to get him, or reading something from the oped pages of The New York Times. It all has the same look, the same, makes the same visual sense. And, um, I know I'm sounding like a Neanderthal when I say this, but, uh, I'm just appalled by half the stuff that I see on the Internet.

I came across a study from faculty at UNC a few years back that noted the population view bloggers as more trustworthy than the mainstream press.

Being a blogger and a communication scholar, I had red flags jumping outta my skull. Until I read further into the study and its findings....

Bloggers aren't afraid to tell you where they stand. Want something from the left? You know where to go. Want something from the right? You know where to go. You may not agree with what you read, but at least you know their motives before reading.

BUT does anyone on the planet believe Katie Couric when she says she's nonpartisan? Does anyone believe Brian Williams? Does anyone believe George Stephanopolis? When they plead about how "neutral" they are, viewers instantly turn off the "credibility factor" from that point forward.


I love citizen journalism. Dig into the origins of it during colonial America's founding. Lots of people printed their own "broadsides" that they'd pass out (basically, the 1760 version of updating your Facebook status). It's when England started pushing the Stamp Act that the tinderbox of the American Revolution was lit...
