Public opinion made to order at USA Today (emphasis added):
CNN's Jeff Greenfield says. "What's striking about this (TVNewser) is he seems to be pretty good at separating fact from rumors. I don't care if he's 20. His standards are the right ones."
[Brian] Williams explained that in this new-media age, Stelter's online TVNewser blog, at Mediabistro.com, was a must-read for anyone in network and cable news. TVNewser "is the closest thing to the bible of what's going on in our industry," says Williams, who checks it daily.
MSNBC chief Dan Abrams says Stelter "is used as much as most reporters. They're given tips and they have to decide, 'Why am I getting this information, is it accurate and what's the context?' I think he has been very good at that."
Last week, after the unexpected death of former Enron chief Ken Lay, someone e-mailed Stelter to say - erroneously and anonymously - that CNBC planned to run a prime-time special on Lay. Stelter posted it but quickly corrected the report after CNBC contacted him. He says his willingness to do so has increased his blog's credibility.
I will leave you to ponder this last bit yourselves:
"People write me and say, 'Thank you for correcting yourself.' I guess that's in short supply these days. Not enough people admit when they mess up. To me, credibility is all I have."
