I think not. I see the web (blogs, social networks etc) a bit like a virtual pub or coffee bar. Just as you do not go home and write up a story on the basis of a chat with a random stranger over a few pints in the pub, you do not use online sources you don’t know or trust or verify. However, to expand on that metaphor, you might go home and write up that story from the pub if you met with a CEO you know well and know has the authority to say what he or she said.

Al-Jazeera has been called ‘the CNN of the Arab World’, a ﬁtting description for a station that concentrated on images of injured Iraqis during the war, just like the emotionally-centred news reporting values of its Western counterparts.
In Lincolnshire we’ve found this difficult. My own opinion is that we need to treat the issue with sensitivity and understand the resistance to change that exists in many communities. If the newspaper – or any authority – pushes that change too far too quickly then disharmony, distrust and resentment soon follow. In the case of the Echo we try to help readers understand more about the new residents through articles on food, culture and the economy. We haven’t gone down the route of columns written in Polish or pages devoted to these communities because I’m not sure our existing readers would react positively – at least not yet.
