In his excellent New York Times column, the Media Equation, David Carr explores the sticky, complicated case of a blogger whose private emails (not recent, btw) undermined the image the Washington Post had in mind for him as a blogger on the conservative movement. WaPo fired him. Carr elucidates the problem mainstream media outlets face when they strive for “voice” and sharp analysis in their blogs. Is it possible for a human being to be smart, engaging and truly insightful and not develop some personal opinions in the course of reporting?
