Notes from the Ag Media Summit: Reporting versus Agvocating
On Monday, I got to be on a panel with Sarah Muirhead, publisher of Feedstuffs, and Greg Henderson of Drovers. We discussed the issues of ag reporting versus "agvocating," both how the lines have blurred and how we have to approach all those emotional issues in agriculture.[Read Full Blog Post]

WOW Chris it will be great when Beef Pork magazines stop attacking the RFS and tell us how the JBS and Smithfield takeover of packinghouses and a large share of the livestock feeding and production is going to affect the midwest. I am sure that cheap corn is on there lobbying agenda.

Chris, Is objective reporting a product that can be produced anymore? FOX and other "news" outlets promote their lack of objectivity and their adoring audience repeats it all as fact. The WSJ always had a sterling reputation in my youth and now it is a rag echoing FOX type rant. When you see it being quoted by known crazies, you know its credibility is gone.

Don I like your post only you forgot that a little truth also helps.

Why do you highlite Fox, Don? NBC, CBS, ABC, CNBC are so ratings oriented, even their weather forcast is unpredictable.

Yeah but Bonnie,,,, did you see Fox's election predictions last Nov compared to the others? I myself prefer NPR or BBC to the big guys but Faux News is where I go for a laugh!

I wanted to thank all of your guys for your posts. We tend to grapple a lot with these issues and the kind of media people gravitate to watch these days.
