CBS Sunday Morning’s Two Takes On Blogging

Author:

I never watch this program but for some reason I did this Sunday. I took it as a sign when Tim Bourquin sent me a link to the first video online that it required a post.

This first piece is pretty good considering the audience and despite the little dig equating bloggers with yellow journalism.

We should all heed the implied word of warning to avoid the consolidation that took over and some say ruined the newspaper business.

Doesn’t this piece remind you a little bit of the great videos Lee Lefever makes?

Then comes the next piece on Twitter by Nancy Giles who doesn’t quite get Twitter.  Now wait just a cotton picking minute, she actually embeds one of Lee’s videos in the piece.  Now I really want to know if the Fast Take guys were ripping Lee off errr showing him the greatest  form of flattery.

She’s not sure how she feels about the news being interactive and at the end of the piece Nancy poses the question:

I’m wondering if you use Twitter are you considered a Twit?

In your case Nancy the answer is yes. What do you say tweople, am I being too hard on Nancy?
