Blogger’s going to court.. as jurors…
Posted by gottabkd on Tuesday, January 16, 2007
Blogger’s get credit and recognition, by becoming jurors in the Lewis “Scooter” Libby case in Washington…
As noted in
Digital Journal this for the first time, about six bloggers will be “approved for credentials” and be able to report on the case, apparently a really big case with high profile individuals being called as witnesses.
The Media Bloggers Association among others, will be covering this trial and make comments without having to stick to the same guidelines journalists, so often, must stick to.
No matter what happens, this is huge for the blogging community, and huge for society as a whole. Giving unbridled opinion is what we all want but hardly ever get, due to the perception that unbiased honesty is just not there.
I just hope they pick the right six people, ones who have proven their blog worth, shall we say, to everyone.
There appears to be no limits as to how far this could go and will be interesting to watch, blog and see!
Till Next Time….
