Wise words from Armed Liberal in light of the Hiltzik melt-down:
"Transparency, respect, an interest in a mutually beneficial dialog with one's audience. That's the future of mass media.
"Arrogance, secrecy, and a death-grip on the megaphone is the past.
"The Times will eventually embrace the former; I genuinely hope that future is now. The form of dialog without the substance - a willingness to talk and listen - is, as this episode has shown, not going to get them there.
"We, in the blogging community, can encourage them by not crowing, not attacking the Times or Hiltzik, and instead trying to encourage them down the path toward their - and our - future."
