Here at Speedendurance.com, we like CBC, as it is our main source for most of the IAAF Golden League meets and the upcoming IAAF World Championship meet in Osaka.
Plus, we don’t have to hear Carol Lewis.
I would love to watch it live on WCSN, but their blackout policy prohibits me from viewing it from my ISP.
I was shocked to hear CBC journalists now has a formal “Facebook Policy” for their employees.
I like Facebook and LinkedIn, as it is a great tool for social networking and bookmarking. You can freely connect to me as your friend in Facebook, or link to me in LinkedIn.
In this article, www.insidethecbc.com/facebookpolicy, they quote:
It may compromise your work by letting friends see other friends on your network,â€ the policy document says. It may also not be in your interest to identify yourself as a â€˜friendâ€™ of a source on their network.â€
In the context of basic reporting, you do not want one source to â€™seeâ€™ what another source says, nor do you want your private â€˜conversationâ€™ with a source becoming public. Adding sources as â€˜friendsâ€™ makes the management of this much trickier.â€
What are your thoughts?
