'Jurkowitz Swings and Misses':
Reader No. 1 on the totally predictable Mark Jurkowitz piece
"Jurkowitz Swings and Misses:
"Insofar as his Theo summary added nothing we didn't already know, his piece is barely worth blogging on. What happened to the part of the article that would track the reaction of the blogosphere
? It's barely part of the story (no particular bloggers named, I note) and completely subsumed by tedious scorecarding of the local media and goo-goo suggestions about the Globe's ownership disclosure.
"But hopefully, you Herald folk take the 'paper with a chip on its shoulder' as a compliment. (It really is.)"Hub Blog's reaction
-- I agree with Reader No. 1 and Adam
: Nothing new in the story, unless you consider 'new' to be a slight amplification on previously indicated biases
to come. ... If you take out the grades he gave the Globe and Herald, you might probably conclude the Herald was an equal and/or worse bad-boy in this 'fiasco.' But, like I said, it was predictable. It was only marginally better than the Globe ombudsman's
lame 'self-parody' attempt at being objective. ... FYI: Though Mark didn't disclose his ex-Globie status in the article despite thinking that a lack of disclosure attribution was somehow at the heart of the Globe's Theogate 'perception' debacle, I'd just like to state that I'm a Herald business reporter.
