Rick Sanchez, an anchor/correspondent on CNN who serves as the anchor of the weekend primetime edition of CNN Newsroom, started using Twitter while covering Hurricane Gustav last weekend. LexBlog’s Kevin O’Keefe shares the story.
According to Kevin’s post, some of the CNN producers encouraged Sanchez to use Twitter to help cover the story. How many reporters would have responded: “I’m too busy for that silly shit!”
Honestly, it’s like trying to shoo a pod of dolphins back into the ocean to keep them from dying.
