“Don’t let blogs rattle us,” current CBS Evening News anchor Bob Schieffer said last night in Manhattan during the annual awards dinner for the Deadline Club, New York’s Society of Professional Journalists chapter.
But uphold journalistic standards, he said, because “Who knows what medium people are going to rely on for news five years from now? … [But] the integrity of the reporter is not going to change,”
Schieffer told an audience of predominantly print and television journalists that there are three types of blogs: “straight blogs”; “partisan blogs”; and “totally irresponsible” blogs — those akin to people “who put viruses on your computer.” Journalists, he said, should “ignore that part of the blogosphere.” Yeah, at their own peril.
