It does seem doubtful that many of the things in the story were on the record. There are items "on the record" and items "off the record" and then there are casual remarks that occur during normal conversation which aren't clearly either. It would be my bet that most of the problematic quotes are of the more casual nature. Hastings broke a big story, got a general fired and put his magazine into the news cycle, but he probably also damaged his own career. Who is going to trust him now?in reference to: Hot Air » Pentagon official: “Rolling Stone” made McChrystal’s staff think they were speaking off the record (view on Google Sidewiki)
When they follow his advice and lose their homes. I don't agree or disagree with his central points, well actually I do. It wasn't just the bankers that caused this problem. It was the bankers, the government and yes people who took out loans they could not afford. There is a good amount of greed and dishonestly at all levels of the melt down.in reference to: MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan Urges Homeowners to Stop Paying Mortgages As a Leftist Protest | NewsBusters.org (view on Google Sidewiki)

Which means it shouldn't be a surprise that it is going to be controlled more by the purchaser than the seller.in reference to:
"Here is the deepest and, to many serious journalists, most disturbing truth about the future of news: The audience will control it. They will get the kind of news they choose to get. Not the kind they say they want, but the kind they actually choose."

In the face of a crisis that has unfolded for almost two full months, Obama chose to talk about wind turbines. A nation waited to see if a leader would emerge from the White House, and instead it got an absent-minded professor desperate to change the subject.

Groups like The Nature Conservancy have taken money from BP in the past. Some are claiming this damages the reputation of these organizations.
I disagree, the donation was between a company that wanted to look environmentally friendly, and non-profits that need cash to protect the environment. Both sides knew what the deal was, and it should be clear to everyone else too.
The real question, is what those groups are going to do now. Are they going to hit BP hard for its mistakes, or are they going to go soft on the company?
