Social Media’s Impact on Journalism

We read a fantastic opinion column over the weekend by Times Union Editor Rex Smith entitled “Restraint, even as news ignites.” (click title to access article)

For the past two days I’ve started to write my own thoughts on this article, but, alas, I’ve realized after much scribbling that he does a much better job of explaining things than my scribbling does, so I’ll just let you read the article for yourself and let you form your own opinion about it. I will say this, “Bravo! Hat’s off to Smith for so clearly articulating the impact social media sites have had on professional journalism.” Happy reading!
