Comments on: WSJ reporters get, dig change http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/2008/12/04/wsj-reporters-get-dig-change/ Exclusive outtakes from industry leaders Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Robert MacMillan http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/2008/12/04/wsj-reporters-get-dig-change/comment-page-1/#comment-643 Fri, 05 Dec 2008 16:49:05 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/?p=2366#comment-643 Ronald, all the points you make here are things that we have reported. It’s also fairly well known that I spent a very short, six-week part of my career working at Murdoch’s Journal, so you might find that my digging is more informed than most people’s.

Also, this is a blog, and sometimes it’s OK to throw things up there and let people like you comment. We also have a wire that is full of analysis and digging and where, if you do some digging, you will find that what you think we lack is actually out there.

My telephone number is 646-223-6012. If you are as informed as you sound, you must have good anonymous tips to give me. Help me help you.

A lot of it is spin…For example, it’s well known that Dow Jones has made cuts at Dow Jones Newswires and it’s also well known within the company that people have been bought out or forced out. As for Thomson’s sentiment that people are “enthusiastic,” I think you’d get a different take on things if you bothered to talk to any of the many veteran WSJer and DJers who now find their roles marginalized. C’mon, Reuters, stop repeating spin and do some digging and reporting. We need knowledge and analyiss in today’s post-whatever-they-say-and-don’t-questio n-it-world.
