Blogs: brilliant or biased?

The world is witnessing an explosion of online weblogs or “blogs”. IJNet would like to explore how journalists should make use of this new medium.

Do you have your own blog? Do you know of any journalists who are active in this medium? If yes, do you think you/they write and report about issues they can’t talk about in their own media organization? Or is it just to present a different or more personal point of view?

Do you think bloggers have a responsibility to adhere to the standards conventional media outlets follow?

Are there any blogs you consider to be a useful source of information? How do you verify the information posted?
