A Code of Conduct for Bloggers?
Everyone knows that most bloggers express their opinions online without any taboos, but it seems that certain people would like this situation to end. A UK press organization believes that online publications and bloggers should sign a journalistic 'code of conduct'. Would the net be a better place with such a code in place? Personally, I do not think so. The beauty of blogging resides in the fact that people can honestly express their opinions online without being influenced by third-party factors, or fear of reprisal. What are your thoughts on this issue?
The head of the UK Press Complaints Commission has suggested that bloggers and other Internet content creators should agree to a voluntary code of conduct that governs what they publish online.
