Glass Shards

I was loaned a DVD copy of Shattered Glass by my workmate Jonny last week. This film tells the story of Stephen Glass a disgraced journalist who wrote at the New Republic magazine. Glass managed to have over two dozen made up or badly researched articles appear in one of America's most reputable magazines despite a rigorous editorial policy.

The story got me thinking about how dishonesty would play out in blogging, given its rise as a grass roots way to publication.

I posted on this at AlwaysOn (registration required). As an aside the increasing power of blogs as a media has been recognised in political circles with bloggers been given press credentials for the forthcoming Democrat Party Convention, more details here.

Oh yeah, the film is good and features Chloe Sevigny who had previous appeared in the uber-preppie American Psycho.
