How Kara Swisher Gets Her Scoops: "Tasers and Idle Threats"

Posted: Updated:

Here on the streets of Manhattan last week, we spoke with Kara Swisher, Co-Executive Editor of All Things Digital,  about her Loeb award and her definition of blogging (it's the same as reporting, she says).

Asking how she gets her scoops, and there have been several lately, notably the Zynga IPO, she replied with "tasers and idle threats."  Seriously speaking, she said she and her team work very hard to break news.
