Joshua Fattal and the perils of Internet journalism

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009 I’m a huge fan of the Internet – in fact, it’s a large part of my job.  Obviously,  I’m a blogger, and regard blogging as an essential ingredient in the newspaper of tomorrow. But I’m also alarmed at how easily distortions and mistakes, reported as “news” by bloggers and disseminated to vast, worldwide audiences that uncritically accept their outpourings,  become indelible parts of the news background.
