Institutional truthiness

Dan Gillmor continues to hold Time’s feet to the fire for it’s reluctance to correct Joe Klein’s factual errors.

Time is giving us as good as example as we could have asked for of the down side of relying on institutions that depend on being perceived as authoritative.

  1. Time is giving us as good as example as we could have asked for of the down side of relying on institutions that depend on being perceived as authoritative.

    Yes. I used the same example to headline a blog post in the following manner:
    “A PERFECT Example of Why Andrew Keen Is More Wrong Than He Is Right …”

    It struck me that the majority of the commenters were more knowledgeable than Joe Klein in the comments threads following each of the 5 posts Klein created on the impacts of the pending FISA bill. By the fifth blog post, commenters were more and more often asking why, exactly, Klein did not see his job as at least working towards being accurate as opposed to just tossing off relatively uninformed opinions.

    Then, the Times editor made the situation even worse through her basic disdain towards commenters and blog analysts.

    The problem for Time and other established journalistic institutions is that the blog world does not seem to be in danger of going away any time soon.
