Sunday Morning Show Quotes – 8.17.14

Gov. Jay Nixon (D-MO) on “This Week” on the situation in Ferguson: ”The overmilitarization, the IMRAPs rolling in, the guns pointed at kids in the street, all of that I think instead of ratcheting down, brought emotion up. And that’s why I made the unique decision to bring in our highway patrol, to have a local leader, Captain Johnson from that community in that community, which he has been, and to put a much different face on law enforcement there, and I think it has paid off while respecting and allowing the appropriate first amendment rights for people to grieve and to speak.”

Gov. Nixon on “Meet the Press” on surveillance video being released: “Yeah. Everyone can rest well assured that we’ve had very serious discussions about that action and how much we felt that it was not the right way to handle the victim’s family, which I had a chance to speak with. They were deeply troubled. And when you see your son gunned down in the street and then you see a police chief begin an attempt to attack his character…That’s just not the way to operate. And we’ve made that clear to everyone. And our hope and expectation is that now that our folks are in charge of security, and we have these dual investigations going on, that, that bump is behind us, hopefully.” Read more

PBS MediaShift’s ‘Mediatwits’ Explore Plagiarism

pbs-mediashift-logo-final1-470x140Following instances of plagiarism at BuzzFeed and The New York Times in recent weeks, PBS MediaShift executive editor Mark Glaser pulled together POLITICO’s Dylan Byers, The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, Newsweek’s Alex Leo and Poynter’s Kelly McBride for “How Far Does Plagiarism Go in the Age of BuzzFeed?,” the latest installment of “Mediatwits.”

“I think that the problem with an organization like The Huffington Post and BuzzFeed, while it’s a business model where the fun stuff pays for serious journalism to be done, is that you’ve blurred the lines completely between what are the serious practices and serious rules and something that we do on Tumblr for fun,” explains Leo.

Definitely worth a listen this weekend.
