from Greg Wyshynski at Yahoo,
Why is it so easy for Kevin Schultz of FanHouse to acknowledge that Strickland’s report appeared on HockeyBuzz.com, where he is a compensated blogger, but not for the mainstream media?
Look, we don’t consider that Web site to be a source of anything but rampant egomania; but like I wrote last week, this trend in which the MSM either fails to source or vaguely sources news broken by blogs is unreasonable and unprofessional….
That said: Andy, Andy, Andy ... you actually wrote in the Bowman piece that, “Word is Bowman is expected to accept the job. This would be huge news!” Haven’t you learned anything from your boss Dwayne Klessel, the musician currently playing the role of “Eklund” on your site? Never make a declarative statement like that, or else you’ll end up reporting that Ryan Smyth re-signed with Edmonton moments before he’s actually traded to the Islanders.
You would think Dwayne, with a journalism degree from McGill University in Montreal (yes, he told me that himself during a conversation I had with him at the SCF) would know better than that!
