DaveT: I Hope SR Doesn’t Blogcuff Reporters

Dave Tolle: I for one have very much enjoyed and appreciated the various blog discussions I’ve entered into with S-R folks. They’ve all been informative and some frustrating but never distastful or so controversial as to compromise their work status (IMHO). It would sadden me to see them become reticent about participating in this an S-R blog. It’s a real time community link and how better to let the community get to know the people who bring them the daily news. Whatever emerges from this policy I hope it’s not blogcuffs.

DFO: I’ve asked to be part of the ethics committee discussion re: online commentary by SR journalists. It’s a tricky one. Reporters probably shouldn’t engage in verbal fisticuffs with regular commenters are me. It might compromise them. However, there’s great value for them to participate in discussions about journalistic questions and values. The critical area will be … whether or not a journalist is allowed to post under a pseudonym.
