My Local Paper Disrespects Local Bloggers
by Matt McGee on Oct 13, 2009 in Industry
Add my local newspaper, the Tri-City Herald, to the long (and growing) list of traditional media outlets that have no respect for citizen journalism and local blogs. They said so tonight in a conversation I was following on Twitter: “Who else will you trust? Bloggers? Tweeters?”
I’m beyond tired of the lack of respect local bloggers are getting these days. I replied to the Herald (on Twitter) that comments like this make them sound scared of local bloggers, and reminded them that the Seattle Times recently had to run to four Seattle news blogs and agree to coordinate coverage.
Sheesh. Enough already.
