Ten Days Later….

2

Tonight, after numerous false alarms, ABC is set to
go with the segment they filmed at the Bloggers@Berkman
Meeting
ten
days ago. As the inimitable Mike
Walsh
put it, it would have been better
if they had never come. What does it say about us if we need the validation
of network news to feel good about what we are doing? Nevertheless, we
will probably watch, tonight, at 11:30, on ABC (5 in Boston).

IF YOU CAN’T BEAT
‘EM, BLOG ‘EM       

March 8, 2005

Got something to say? Got access to the Internet?You’re one step away
from being a blogger. And these days, bloggers are having an affect on
politics, news, on everything, really. And blogs are changing the way
we do news. There’s no doubt about it. …

… Tonight, correspondent John Donvan will tell the story about a high
school teacher whose blog led to political change in her state. Tonight’s
piece is a fascinating one. Turns out that as John and producer
Elissa Rubin were conducting interviews with bloggers,they were being
blogged.

The bloggers had some interesting opinions, to say the least. And as
this program airs (and this e-mail is read by
viewers), there’s no doubt that bloggers will blog about it.
