    Jim VandeHei, the Chief Executive at the left-wing Politico, released a “cultural manifesto” Monday, and in it VendeHei openly declares that speed is more important than getting it right. Under the subhead “Agility,” VandeHei tells his staff, ” Be impatient. Move fast as hell to try new things and adjust on the go. It’s better to move quickly and get a few things wrong then to think yourself into paralysis.”

    Here’s the full quote:

    It’s your job to help us constantly reinvent and sharpen ourselves by thinking what can be done better, smarter and more creatively. Be impatient. Move fast as hell to try new things and adjust on the go. It’s better to move quickly and get a few things wrong then to think yourself into paralysis. At the same time, don’t be afraid to fail. People will only experiment and take risks if they know they will not be punished for failing.

    Yes, why would anyone punish someone for not getting something correct in the profession of journalism?

    Sounds like a pre-planned excuse for lying, even destroying someone's life and/or reputation...by getting it wrong...perhaps on purpose.
