I spent my third week in .Com it’s always bustling with the latest news and wonky pieces. And trust me there are some pieces of video that bring out the movie quotes in all of us. And other articles that make me shake my head and wonder how and why we got where we are today.
After spending a week away from the newsroom, I walked back into the world of finding video, sound bites and stills that best bring the story to life for the viewer. Saturday went o.k. I think no serious flubs; the person providing some hand holding, really helped me out and I appreciated it greatly.
Sunday…. Not so much. I let myself get bogged down in a human interest story while a good piece wasn’t so deserving of all the attention I gave it. I firmly believe any journalistic piece should be able to stand on its own merits with out a heavy coming in to help tip the scales. I was wrong when I failed to articulate my concerns. In doing so I made a serious error in judgment, when I let a more important story fall by the way side. I let my team down.
It’s won’t happen again.
Beside I don’t have time to dwell on it. Adjust my course learn from my mistakes. And move forward.
