Traditional journalists, and traditional journalism educators, remain pretty suspicious of blogging in lots of places. But if what I heard in two days of conferencing in Athens and Thessaloniki (the latter is Greece’s second-largest city) is an indication of the overall situation, there’s a larger-than-usual gulf between older and newer media in the land where inquiry and reason helped shape Western culture.
Like students everywhere, the ones I met at Aristotle University’s Department of Journalism and Mass Communication were bright and eager to figure out their future. They are heading into a journalism market dominated by what sounds to me like something of a cartel at the pro-journalism level. But Greece isn’t immune from economic realities, and it’s a reasonable bet that what’s happening to Greek media companies will look, in the end, like what’s happening in the U.S.
Είδε δηλαδή όλα όσα ΔΕΝ θέλουμε να δούμε και να παραδεχτούμε εμείς!
Απλώς τα διατύπωσε με ΠΟΛΥ ευγενικό τρόπο!
Και για να μην ξεχνιόμαστε...
Περί "Ανωνυμίας" είπε και έγραψε:
It’s a real issue. But it’s part of the larger issue of how we help consumers of news and information be better at separating what’s reliable and what isn’t. Here’s a slide I showed in my talk:
The point is that while anonymity is a vital tool to preserve, we should strongly encourage people to stand behind their own words. And, crucially, we should have a default position when we see anonymous speech: Don’t trust it.
In fact, when it comes to anonymous or pseudonymous personal attacks, the default position should be to actively disbelieve what we’ve read or heard.
We should not give the cowards who post such things any slack at all.
There are exceptions, but rare ones.
Είπε δηλαδή και έγραψε ακριβώς αυτά που κάποιοι λένε και γράφουν εδώ και χρόνια και τρώνε την μία επίθεση πάνω στην άλλη ακόμη και σε από φίλους. Ή όχι;
