Beavers and Real Journalists Do What They Do
April 6, 2012
I find this amusing and a good example of the “real” journalists’ approach to information. Navigate to “UK Broadcaster Sky News Admits E-mail Hacking.” Here’s the passage I noted:
John Ryley, head of Sky News, said the instances involved suspected criminal activity. “We stand by these actions as editorially justified and in the public interest,” he said in a statement. “We do not take such decisions lightly or frequently.” An external review of e-mail records is under way at the broadcaster’s instigation, he said, but no grounds for concern have yet been found. “Sky News is committed to the highest editorial standards. Like other news organizations, we are acutely aware of the tensions that can arise between the law and responsible investigative journalism.”
CEOs who “revise” history may be on to something. As an addled goose, I am delighted to say, “I am neither a revisionist of history nor a “real” journalist.” Beavers do what beavers do. I wonder who owns the Wall Street Journal. A “real” journalistic outfit no doubt.
