Long: “We’re Moving From Meet the Press, and Now We Can Meet the People”

mmm_2-3.gifNBC’s Jim Long (or, for you Twitter types, @NewMediaJim), joined us this morning on the Morning Media Menu podcast, to discuss the state of the industry and what got him interested in the new media side.

“We’re moving from Meet the Press, and now we can meet the people,” he says. “It’s great.”

He praised the idea of sharing when it comes to Twitter and other tools. “That’s what the social web is about,” says Long. “It’s about sharing knowledge, it’s about sharing ideas. That’s what people want to do with media — they want to share it.”

Long has been with NBC “since I was a kid,” and says: “It’s like working for the Super Bowl champs. That’s not a bad feeling.”

Also discussed: the future of network news, whether newspapers should start charging for content and which piece of technology got Long interested in new media.

Long appears on the “New Tools of the Trade” panel at the TVNewser Summit tomorrow. Click here for more information and to sign up.

Redlasso, a web site allowing users to make their own clips of cable and broadcast programming, has shut down, “for the immediate future.” NBC and FOX filed suit against the company this week.

In an email to the Redlasso Blogger Advisory Board (of which one of us TVNewsers is a member), Redlasso described the network’s lawsuit as “anti-Web” and “a big blow to the blogger community’s right[s].”

In a press release, the company describes its site as providing, “bloggers with online broadcast content tools that enables them to exercise their first amendment rights to comment on newsworthy events.”

On a side note, TVNewser editor Chris Ariens was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe today defending the work of bloggers after Joe Scarborough‘s recent Cheeto-laced rants. Click continued to see the clip from…oh wait, never mind.

> Update: So a tipster tells us they found the Morning Joe clip with Chris. It’s on and it’s after the jump…
