social networks and Auletta

Mr. Auletta hits the nail on the head when he describes his dilemma in the final answer . A "classical" journalist is a person who has been trained to be an information sponge. It is only a slight exaggeration to say that for us there is nothing that is uninteresting. There are simply things that are more interesting than others, and our quest is to land on the most interesting stories for us to tell. I expect Mr. Auletta is bemused as I am by the time and energy younger generations put into social media and the return they get from it. Its all about choices and time management. We could do what they do, but we choose to put our nose to the ground like a bloodhound and race along sniffing until we find something worth a pause; yes occasionally even to pee on.
