Mitch,

I just posted a new blog post bringing together the revenue performance of U.S. TV, Radio and Newspapers. The numbers don't look good at all.

I just listened to my audio comment and your comments Mitch and now I am less sure of how I feel. I raise these questions, however, in response to your point about pay-per-post eroding the credibility of the social media space.
1) If a company pays someone to post, the person writes something balanced or even critical, and the company keeps paying them to post – doesn’t that raise the credibility of social media?

2) Does the fact that someone isn’t doing disclosed pay-for-post necessarily mean they aren’t biased? They may have clients that affect what they write that they don’t disclose.

3) Is pay-for-post inherently bad because it means those who can pay can buy exposure whereas everyone else has to earn it?

One thing for sure is that I would err on the side of caution and not do pay-for-post myself (not that anyone has offered to pay ;-))

Welcome to episode #135 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. We are getting close to that time of year where everyone shuts down, takes a break, re-energizes and celebrates the many great things that have happened (and will happen). In this episode, I reflect back on my conversation with Chris Brogan and then admit that I've probably said everything a whole lot better right here, on the Blog. That being said, it seems like people are still very much interested in the conversations surrounding credibility and transparency. There is also an amazing news segment and debate about the future of newspapers that is a must-listen to. Enjoy the conversation...
