Bloggers must reveal sources

Bloggers must reveal sources – judge The Register
Hmmm – interesting decision that could have some long reaching implications for bloggers in the future, particularly with those who like to get the “scoop” on an event or product. It might also make bloggers who are not trained journalists realise why some journos are restricted in what they can or cannot report on.

I know a lot of journos get flack for not doing a story based on rumours on the web. Sometimes journos have to go by some rules, which blogger “journos” are not quite used to.

But then the whole case brings into question intergrity vs freedom of speech.
