Speaking of Jewish news sources and their correct attribution of quotes (or not), The Town Crier points out that the JTA quotes from both his and my own blog in an article about the Daylight Savings issue. My post is here.

OM, kudos to you! Two quotes in two newspapers in one week? That's pretty impressive.

That's awesome. I know the writer! I had no idea he was writing for the JTA now. I also know they guy he quoted at the end of the article. I also davenned at KMS when I lived in Silver Spring a year ago. Awesome.
In fact, the only one in the article I don't know is this Rabbi Leff. Though his name sounds really familiar....

i'm not sure if the growing practice of attributing blogs is the dawn of a new day, or a scourge of lazy journalism. what do you think?

A little of both, I think. It's always easier to bolster an article with quotes. The blogosphere has opened up a whole new vista of people with opinions that can do that. It encourages laziness, because instead of actually having to hunt down a source or even (gasp) drop them an email asking for comment, all the reporter has to do is Google, copy, and paste. But hey, if it means that someone's paying attention to the blogs, I'm not complaining.

I mostly agree. The internet has completely changed the way people do research in probably every industry across the board. Personally, i use the internet research for nearly everything I do. Why shouldn't journalists do the same. In other news, congratualtions on bvecoming yet, one more undisclosed journalistic source.

I saw this on JTA, and was asking to myself the same question that still wonderin' asked.

Anyways, congratulations, Orthomom.
