Talking Communications with Farrell Kramer (http://www.talkingcommunications.com), a podcast focusing on all aspects of communications, has released Episode 14 -- Opening the Newspaper.

Episode 14 -- Opening the Newspaper examines the recent decision by washingtonpost.com to open every news story on the site to reader comments. Jim Brady, Executive Editor of washingtonpost.com, shares his thoughts about this decision, what it means in terms of The Washington Post's online philosophy, and some ideas about what the future may hold for the newspaper industry.

"When I heard about The Washington Post's decision to allow comments on all of its online news stories, I was taken aback. During my career as a journalist, we were just getting comfortable with the idea of reporters' e-mail addresses being offered to readers. Broadly allowing comments on news stories raises the bar much higher, creating real conversations with readers and raising fascinating possibilities for communicators. Jim Brady, Executive Editor of washingtonpost.com, shares some of his thinking about reader comments in this very interesting interview," says host Farrell Kramer.
