Should There Be Journalistic Standards For Bloggers?

Andrew Sullivan shares his thoughts on whether bloggers should be held to journalistic standards as part of a series of videos from bigthink.com.

Money quote, for my money:

“There are some very simple rules that apply to all writing: don’t lie; if you’re wrong, correct; do not misrepresent; and try to keep oneself intellectually honest.”

Watch this video posted on his blog, The Daily Dish:

  2. Since when are bloggers pushing their opinions considered journalists? I missed that memo.

  3. How ’bout journalistic standards for journalist?
