His thought process is that reporters cannot have an opinion on a socail network because that’s not fair and balanced. Since any comment made on the Internet by an editor is apparently official news. For example, if a reporter tweeted eating a steak, it’s officially news. If an editor says, “My ass hurts,” on Facebook, it’s officially news. If a producer says – to people following him on Google + – “I’m going to bed,” it’s officially news.
If that’s true – that social media sites now == official news, then holy shit where’s my check? Here’s some “news” for Robert Scoble aka the Scobleizer –
Social networking such as Tweeting is not an official news source. Stop trying to make your little digital world more important than it is. Sure, you can get unofficial news about stuff from Twitter or Google +, but when a guy writes something in his own account, why is that suddenly considered official news? Take your little camera and your opinions and pine away about your self-importance elsewhere, k thx.
