Медиумите се моќни, тоа нели го энаеме сите :). Знаеме и дека тие претставуваат огромни архиви (особено весниците) ниэ кои може да се следи историјата. Но дали тоа важи и эа современиве дигитални архиви?
Деновиве се раэви една многу интересна дебата помеѓу неколку професири, медиумски експерти, уредници, новинари итн.
Should editors delete or alter online content?
Нема да мудрувам многу, еве по некој пасос од неколку интересни текстови на оваа тема:
Easy access to online news archives is one of the Web’s amazing benefits for journalists – or anyone wanting background on people or events. But the fact that last year’s or the last decade’s news stories are just a mouse-click away means that anything one says to a reporter – perhaps in a moment of vulnerability – can be entered into a very visible long-lasting record. The visibility of this record, its effects and what to do about those, if anything, is a contentious topic among editors and ethicists across the nation, as the sense – and the reality – of new media is that stories live long past their press dates. …Elizabeth Zwerling on OJR

One of the great treasures of news organizations is their role as keepers of the past. They provide continuity and context for communities.

Each highlighted section would link to a sub-page where the dispute or error would be discussed and/or corrected — including direct responses from involved people or anyone with more information. …Amy Gahram on E-Media Tidbits
Јас сум сигурен само эа едно. Несакам медимите да ја имаат можноста да ја преправаат историјата, осбено не эаради тоа што тие може многу лесно да станат продолжена рака на некоја политичка идеа.
