I checked out the twitter coverage of events tonight. Pretty dull.
KATU folks were posting stuff, but given their history ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4RYITtEpoY) how could anyone believe anything they say?
Anita Kissee tried her hand at snark, "Hey @portlandimc -- What are you "tweeting" on.... Your corporate iPhone? Your corporate blackberry? Your corporate Android?" but only showcases that she doesn't understand the difference between "using a tool" and "being a tool".
In general I think this is where social networking has led us. Everyone's biases are on full display. I think this is for the best. Perhaps in the future journalists will be taught to uphold honesty and that no one can report well on a subject or situation they don't understand.
Writing what you know serves the pursuit of knowledge. Writing what you don't know simply perpetuates ignorance.
