Assumptions are the new journalism

Still busy, nothing major, but I did want to give a shout-out to Dan Hsu for pointing out that, you know, it’d be nice if the rumor-peddling megablogs actually did a little research once in a while.

Please note they thank Dan for “clearing up the matter,” but outside of acknowledging it with a “mea culpa” headline, they do not actually apologize for making and publicizing the mistake in the first place. I suspect this is because there is no actual regret for the incredibly assumptive comments that Mike Fahey made. But that’s me assuming!

I would really like to see “journalists” act like journalists. When you fuck up, own up.
