Excerpts of "Welcome to the Newsroom Blog" by Lyman Kirkland
The Public Affairs Department is pleased to announce the launch of the Newsroom Blog. The purpose of this blog is to supplement the Newsroom Web site with additional stories from the Church that may not lend themselves to a news release, and to provide additional context and background on stories that appear in the news media.
You may notice a different, more conversational tone on this blog than you would see in official news releases on the Newsroom Web site. The information here will be reliable and accurate but should not necessarily be viewed as official statements from the Church. The purpose of this blog is to provide journalists, bloggers and the public with additional context and information regarding public issues and news stories involving the Church.
The article goes on to note that questions and comments to posts will generally not be posted.
