There has been a lot of talk about podcasting and facts over the last week. Usually I just observe these issues and go about my business. However something interesting happened today. For the first time, after having been fortunate enough to have been involved in 50+ podcasting related articles and news pieces, I had a reporter contact me specifically to verify a fact regarding a statement someone had made about a podcast I produced. That has never happened before. I have been told fact checkers would call to verify stuff on a number of occasions – but it has never happened. Today it did. Looks like there is still hope for journalism.
