Damaging Reputations

Lost link to article containing these quotes:

"In this new age of unregulated news and the relentless 24-hour news cycle, anyone with a camera (or video-editing software) becomes a source. Information leaps from the guy in his pajamas to the top of the network lineup before it is vetted, analyzed or pondered..."

"Breitbart has a history of creative editing to serve his political ends."

"What hasn't changed in our new super-heated media configuration is that the follow-up story can never undo the original damage."

The article was about Shirley Sherrod, but the quotes are apt to anyone, especially political figures.
