BBC Likes Bloggers
Well, at least one of their correspondents thinks we have value…
For many in the “mainstream media”, as bloggers call us, weblogs are at best a nuisance and at worst dangerous.
They are seen as the rantings and ravings either of the unbalanced or the tedious.
My experience over the past few months has led me to an opposite conclusion.
I regard the blogosphere as a source of criticism that must be listened to and as a source of information that can be used.
The mainstream media (MSM in the jargon) has to sit up and take notice and develop some policies to meet this challenge.
The editorial goes onto cite three seperate instances where bloggers helped uncover the truth.
It’s definitely worth a read.
