Zen and the art of blogging

Read Terence Blacker’s piece in the Independent yesterday complaining about irresponsible bloggers – “in the blogosphere there is no accountability”. I can see the argument up to a point, but surely blogs are ‘community policed’, where credibility can quickly ebb away? Maybe this is an opportunity for journos and bloggers to get together, as the threat of bloggers was also voiced to me by another journalist recently who expressed anxiety that bloggers are eating away at their livelihood.
