Bloggers don’t have Baghdad bureaus

“News and opinion mingle with alarming alacrity [online],” Andrew Rosenthal, editorial page editor at The New York Times, told the (U.S.) Association of National Advertisers’ annual conference, in a speech on standards and change reported by Advertising Age. “Bloggers cannot replace what we do. They are not going to open a bureau in Baghdad.”

Can’t say that too often, imo. The danger is that this message will never sink in with the public and policy makers.
