ヒラリー・クリントンの後がま議席をめぐる報道に関して:

一流メディアであることの矜持とインターネット報道の狭間で・・・

New York Times: “Reporting in Real Time” by Clark Hoyt: 07 February 2009

何が起きたか

This is where the print newspaper and the digital newspaper are colliding. The traditional once-a-day cycle allows more time for reporting and thoughtful discussion about how a story should be framed. What happened in this case is that normal news reporting, in which a story changes in content, tone and emphasis as more is learned, played out in front of the whole world, instead of in the newsroom before publication. In the process, Kennedy took an unfair hit.

守るべきは・・・

Competitive fervor is not a justifiable ethical value,” said Bob Steele, an ethicist at the Poynter Institute in Florida.

新聞とウェブ

Sexton and Roberts think the fear of a culture shift is overblown. Even in the print world, Roberts said, editors often have to make snap decisions on deadline. “I don’t think we should be driven to throw out any rules or standards for the sake of haste,” he said, “and generally I don’t think we do.” That’s true, as far as it goes, but print deadlines are established, and journalists work all day toward them. The Web has no deadlines, just the anxiety that the guy down the street will beat you to the story, and you have to get yours published fast.

たとえインターネットが未来でも・・・

The Internet is The Times’s future. But the Kennedy saga is a sharp reminder that a newspaper that prides itself on getting things right must exercise great discipline before pushing the button on a fast-breaking story.
