Blogging For Dollars?

May 31st, 2006

Just checked Warren Kinsella’s blog, and he had this tidbit:

Bloggers and the like demanded respect and more of a voice in our democracy, and they got it. As a consequence, they owe democracy a duty – such as disclosing which of them is being quietly paid by which corporation or leadership candidate. They’d demand no less of the mainstream media.

Bloggers are getting paid by corporations and leadership candidates? Wow! I wish I knew there was money to be made at this.

Joking aside, he’s right. If someone is sucking up dollars from sources which could influence their writing, that should be acknowledged PDQ. Otherwise, the public will become cynical of us and we lose our effectiveness.

For the record, Ron has been fed and boozed at my home on countless occasions. He apologizes for not mentioning it earlier.

    While it is true that I have dined at Brian’s once or twice, I must point out that I have never voted for him.
