Le coiffeur citoyen, une autre réaction

Le très pertinent Fagstein (j’ai cru comprendre que ça lui plaisait quand on le complimentait), journaliste indépendant Montréalais, réagit à la “sortie” de Philippe Schnobb. Extraits choisis :

“Certainly there are professional journalists, who make their living (or a large portion thereof) performing journalism (or a reasonable facsimile thereof), usually for a big media outlet. But there are also unprofessional journalists, amateur journalists, part-time journalists. Anyone can be a journalist just by telling a story to another person. And professional journalists can easily become non-journalists, by telling lies, introducing bias or keeping the truth from themselves.”

“So if there’s no real difference between professional journalists and regular people, why can’t we trust citizen journalists?

Because trust is earned, not given away. And even professional journalists (for the most part) can be trusted only so much as they’ve earned that trust.”

Exact, le défi est là.

Sinon, j’aimerais vous faire part d’un commentaire reçu de quelqu’un qui s’y connait (voilà qui devrait contribuer à ma crédibilité), par l’entremise de la messagerie instantanée : “Un peu plus, et on va recommencer le débat sur c’est quoi un journaliste. Me semblait que nous étions rendu pas mal plus loin que cela.

Faut crère que non.
