TV talks about newspapers vs. blogs

A great piece by The Score on the Newspaper/Blogosphere battle:


Both sides have valid points. Cox's point that getting comment from Colin Campbell would have provided better balance is well taken, while Dellow and Sanchez's point that knowing Cox's name doesn't mean that we know his biases and personal relationships is just as valid.

It's something to think about, and I honestly think that both should be able to co-exist. Bloggers tend to take a different angle on stories - for example, Dellow looked at the emails differently than a Toronto Star reporter who initially was reporting on the lawsuit that the emails were evidence in. But the MSM can also help to flesh out the story, get the reaction from the principals thanks to their "access".
