Bloggers Should Be More Responsible

There seems to be a lot lately about bloggers being more responsible with what they post. They are currently being blamed for everything form being corrupt to destroying the printed media.

Some even suggest that bloggers should be the police of other media. Some of these suggestions are ridiculous but do raise interesting questions about the responsibility of bloggers.

After all many bloggs are now more widely read than papers. Why spend an hour or more trying to pick out stories form the BBC website when you can go to one blogg and have all the best stories of the day on one page. Selected by some one who has the same interests as you.

Old media should not try and blame the blogg for there demise but there own inability to adapt to new media, but bloggers are taking note with the Blogging, Journalism & Credibility seminar. Altought what will come of this is any ones guess.
