DON SURBER ON THE A.P.:
I have got a great boss who lets me do my thing here. But some of my colleagues, privately, remain skeptical of blogs because there is no editor. Bloggers can write anything, blah, blah, blah. . . .
Given the stonewalling over the fake Captain Jamil Hussein â€” Iraqis have no police captain with that name and AP will not admit it used a pseudonym as a source â€” AP editors have forgotten to protect their agencyâ€™s credibility. They have to work to earn it every day.
Just like the bloggers.
