Rumor has it
Without pomposity or hyperbole, James Vesely of the Seattle Times gives a bit of history of the newspaper and states what I think is the real challenge in the digital age: adapting to the Internet without succumbing to the temptation to alter our mission.
He says: "Foremost, a decent newspaper is the enemy of rumor and a citizen of its place. Blogs are not the enemy of rumor, nor is talk radio or cable television. Rumor is not the substitute for truth, and it takes journalism to sift for truth."
