Q: Is the news judgment of your editors changing because of the blogosphere? Are they worried?

A: My view is that the blogosphere is a very healthy news component that has “democratized the shaming element”. Basically, the traditional advice given to young managers is “don’t do anything you would feel uncomfortable about if it appeared on the front page of The New York Times”. I certainly still feel that way, but in today’s world, I would also add “don’t do anything that will get blogged to death and show up on the Reuters.com homepage”. With the blogosphere, there is no free ride, since it is more than likely that somebody will find out about what you did and then blog about it.
