How to be an awesome news commentator

Monica Guzman from the Big Blog at the Seattle Intelligencer has some great suggestions:

She makes a great point that journalism is no longer 1 to 1 news reporting and that helping add value to a news story can be a big help. Guzman highlights that by adding resources you not only help the reporter and the listening audience, but that you make PR wonks far less relevant.

Great suggestions. I wonder how Guzman would resolve the commenting, linking, vs. email conundrum?
