On Theatre and Politics - Matthew Freeman: Journalism and Blogging

Matthew Freeman has written an excellent entry summing up the crucial differences between journalism and blogging with regard to the incident with Mike Daisey's play.

Ultimately, he explains, that the good and bad thing about blogging is that it's "fast to the trigger." The bloggers are the first to respond and possibly force the journalists to take note, but are not the ones to actually offer up the cold hard facts about the situation (i.e., apparently this incident was not based on the pre-meditated actions of a protesting Christian Right group with the intention of sabotage).

Give it a read.

Blogging first,

James "Asking Questions Later" Comtois
