Blame Game

by Roger Pynn

There will no doubt be questions for a long time about the devastating dip in United Airlines’ stock prices this week, and just as surely there will be many players working to distance themselves from the incident.

In an earlier post I suggested that newspapers, having put their content and their futures on the Internet, must ultimately exercise the caution that prevents misinformation such as we saw in this incident.

Pointing fingers won’t do any good. Stepping up the plate may just make newspapers relevant again.
