Bloggers Can't Ignore Basic Journalism Ethics

Here's an interesting opinion piece that appeared on last week. If you are blogging, it's worth a few minutes to think implications of things like the recent California ruling allowing bloggers a first amendment right to protect their sources. If you read a lot of blogs, it's good food for thought regarding the objectivity (or potential lack thereof) of the sites you read.

But speaking of objectivity, one of the commentors quite rightly points out that it would be foolish to assume that because technology journalists supposedly live under tighter rules their writings can be taken as being without bias.
