Something “The Entertainer” Should Read & Address

from Spector’s Soapbox,

I realize there are other bloggers - some of them I like to consider my friends - who have legitimate issues with what he does, but that’s between them and Eklund to sort out.
I’ve publicly opted not to take sides, as I feel there’s plenty of room in cyberspace for he and I to peacefully co-exist and as long as he respects that so will I.
The only problem I’ve had with Eklund is his anonymity, which I felt was a detriment in terms of earning his peers respect, legitimacy for his work and gaining access within the ranks of the NHL media.

read on... and I am sure that is what many of the bloggers want.  Address the issues Dwayne, it is time to do so.

An Ethical Look At “Eklund”

Greg Wyshynski at the NHL Fanhouse does a very in-depth story on “Eklund”.

Because as Eklund’s popularity and influence have grown—with surging Web traffic, high-profile radio gigs and an on-air role during an NHL trade deadline television special—so have serious charges about a fraudulent biography, his lack of journalistic ethics and some online behavior that historically has gotten professional reporters fired. During our hour-long conversation, the “anonymous hockey blogger” finally began to answer to them—with some startling revelations….
One of the most controversial aspects of the Eklund legend is his biography. The background he had given to ESPN was in direct contrast with the fanciful origin story he gave FanHouse’s Eric McErlain in an early (and must-read) interview in 2005. Self-aggrandizing aside—I still love the part about having written a book that sold so well he no longer had to work full-time—the fact was that the official bio on his Web site changed significantly after he began attracting a larger audience.

Hopefully, this will turn out to be a “reference post”, where hockey fans can ask away and get the correct answer.

Credibility Counts

from the Palm Beach Post,

A major hurdle facing bloggers who want more access are questions of credibility and accountability. Many sites lack old-school journalism standards regarding fairness and ethics.
“In the independent blog, you are your own boss, so you’re not going to fire yourself,” said Perlmutter, the KU professor. “Technically, bloggers are accountable to no one.”
Nonetheless, when it comes to libel law, bloggers can be held to the standards of traditional media.
“The same rules apply, but it might be that nobody cares about a nut on the Internet,” said attorney Sam Terilli, a former general counsel of The Miami Herald who teaches Media Law and Ethics at the University of Miami.

read on... some NHL blogger talk too.

There is that word again, credibility, which always is at the top of the list when this discussion is brought up.  It is a word that I try to live up to on a daily basis. 
A few bloggers don’t know the meaning of the word, and continue to ignore it.

Transformation

I happen to know the movie “Transformers” is pretty popular now, but to be truthful, that is all I know about it.  Reading this just confused me even more…

from LCS Hockey,

AUTOBOTS
Optimus Prime: He’s the leader of the Autobots and arguably the best Transformer. Sidney Crosby would be the first name that comes to mind, but Sid’s kind of young. Optimus Prime is more of a veteran leader. Mario Lemieux would have made the prefect Optimus. Or Steve Yzerman. Ron Francis. Of current NHLers, though, I’d say Joe Sakic is the closest.
Bumblebee: In the cartoons, Bumblebee was always the scrappy little guy trying to prove his worth to the older Autobots. Now that’s Crosby. But in winning the Art Ross, Hart, and Lester Pearson last season, Sid may have gone from Bumblebee to Optimus Prime.
Ratchet: Ratchet’s an ambulance. No doubt, he’s Peter Forsberg

continued and thanks to Blueland Blog for the pointer…
