I gave the reporter the first opportunity.
She spurned it. ("Thankyou for this. Always good to get reader reaction").
I've always made the assumption that my posts to the link and privacy
lists are open to journalists to feed off. Naive maybe, and not
strong promotion. But the good journos do drop an email to me or
pick up the phone, in order to regularise their use of it, and to get
another angle on the topic.
Any thoughts about how I can more effectively feed it into the chain?
I've considered putting the comments up as an annotation to the
article. (I could even put the word 'blog' on the page, and then it
would be in the contemporary vogue).
That would arguably breach copyright - assuming that I include the
bits I didn't comment, so as to avoid the accusation of quoting out
of context - but Fairfax may not be disposed to pursue that aspect.
