A Messy Business May 31, 2007

Posted by newscoma in Newscoma Files.

An observation from Terry Heaton on blogging and the world of mainstream news.

The conversation that is news can be a messy business, especially where it’s up-close and personal like it is in the immediate world of the blogosphere. Issues are discussed here in a way that’s not codified and neat, and frankly, I think that’s incredibly healthy for our culture. This particular matter is going to get even messier as the 2008 elections approach. The question is will media companies have the spine to engage it this way or will they cling to the safe harbor of same-o, same-o?

And there is a good example of where Freezertroll and I are trying to find the balance of the new media and the old.

And in rural American, sometimes this conversation is not an easy one.
