    And this blog does not exhibit a bias towards those that advertise here? Whether Nadia was right or wrong in a journalistic sense her emotional outburst has highlighted the frustration that many feel with the P&L,SC, Cordish and the lies and bullshit we were fed about it from KKK Barnes on down the line. Bias is everywhere in the media. It is rare to find a truly objective source on any matter. Even Art Brisbane during his tenure at the Star said he was more interested in shaping and influencing opinion than reporting the news.Is Nadia really all that different in her “bias” on this matter that Maureen Dowd or Margaret Carlson have been in glorifying George Tiller? Bias is like an asshole, everybody has one.

    This is so wrong in so many ways, but the most obvious is that Nadia was not covering the story. Jason Harper and Justin Kendall were. She wrote only that blog and only as a response to your own biased attack. I have a journalism degree myself, but it doesn’t take one to notice that your report was completely one-sided: you contacted Cordish for comment but not Nadia herself.

    Please get a life or some common sense.

    What a bullshit explanation.

    Nice try Hearne.

    Ethics.Right. hit the nail on the head. Nadia never covered the Jazzy Jeff story, so most of your rational is complete bullshit. Kyle Koch, Jason Harper and Justin Kendall are the only ones who made posts on the Pitch blogs about it.

    Plus you are using all your faulty logic about this situation to drag obviously private information like her choice of boyfriend into the story which is grandly ironic since you are bashing her for supposed ethical lapses.

    You need to man up (LOL) and apologize to her for all this bullshit. If you felt the need to post this explanation you obviously aren’t totally comfortable with what you did.

    now we know what the pitch staff thinks. nobody else cares enough to reply because this wasn’t a story to begin with. reporter who isn’t covering a story has an opinion on it? how about telling us when that doesn’t happen

    If she wasn’t reporting on the story why did she call Stephens for a comment and why did the Pitch include her reporting in its story? and if nobody cares, why did she write a retort on the Pitch web site and then why did it get taken down so fast? And how will she be able to call those companies for a comment for future stories? the journalism professor says if she were P&L, etc, she wouldn’t take Nadia’s calls in the future.

    Here’s an excellent article about how some large publications are dealing with their staffers using social media. The article by Joe Strupp in Editor & Publisher indicates that many news papers are creating guidelines for reporters and editors who have a presence in various social media, such as Twitter, Facebook, etc.

    Especially insightful is “Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times, started tweeting, albeit sparingly, last month. ‘I have asked people to use common sense and respect the workplace and assume whatever they tweet will be tied to the paper,’ he told me. ‘Even when they are tweeting personal information to their followers, they are still representing the New York Times.'”

    One more lift from the Joe Strupp article. He writes:

    “But the Wall Street Journal’s guidelines advise users [reporters] to not mix ‘business and pleasure’ in their postings and also warns: ‘Sharing your personal opinions, as well as expressing partisan political views, whether on Dow Jones sites or on the larger Web, could open us to criticism that we have biases and could make a reporter ineligible to cover topics in the future for Dow Jones.'”

    Notwithstanding any squabbles here in KC, it seems the new media environment is very fluid and the rules are not set in stone, probably never will be because things evolve too quickly now. The fact that an AP executive editor reports they use Twitter as a news gathering tool, to me, is a bit freightening. I think many of us are just trying to fingure out how to play in this new sandbox.

    I would agree with her comment about KC being embarrassing. Funkhouse and all the media attention he’s gotten. On a national level it just makes us look bad.
