If you know a “bloggers have no editors” MSM journalist, please send them this post.
Thanks go to Ken in
Thanks to Tarheel Hawkeye who noted a link carried not to a spoof Obama weather report but a promo. I couldn’t find the spoof, so I took down the post.
Thanks to a journalist friend who offline incorrectly referenced the Minneapolis Star Tribune as a “McClatchy paper,” something it once was but hasn’t been since McClatchy sold it a few years ago.
My friend’s reference was incidental to a longer post. His rereading what he wrote and emailing back a few hours later to correct what was really a small mistake is the kind of thing most of us wish more journos would do.
No justice, no peace has commented often at a number of blogs on the Duke/Durham hoax and frame attempt as well as the ongoing cover-up they’ve spawned.
Recently here and at another blog nj,np misidentified two people, each with the other.
Before anyone could point out nj,np’s errors, nj, np was posting at both blogs calling attention to his/her errors and providing readers the proper information.
It was all done promptly, fully and with prominence equal to the original erroneous posts.
Our democracy would be so much better off if most journalists and bloggers did as nj, np did and as some journalists and bloggers do.
Many of you do “the editor’s work” of putting me on to breaking stories. Thank you.
A final “thank you” to all of you who add to JinC with your “editorial” comments and questions.
