Here is a compelling excerpt:
Bloggers cause anxiety. Governments are wary of these men and women, who are posting news, without being professional journalists. Worse, bloggers sometimes raise sensitive issues which the media, now known as “traditional”, do not dare cover. Blogs have in some countries become a source of news in their own right. .
. . . Certainly the blogosphere is not just adorned by gems of courage and truth. It is also often the source of confusion and disinformation and not all bloggers have the souls of reporters. That is why this handbook contains advice on creating and updating a blog, with no other ambition than that of free expression.
Whether you have the ‘soul of a reporter’, want to read from those who do, want to penetrate the world in a way inhibited by other forms of information distribution, crave better more thoughtful, more honest news, write or own blog, and so on. Please go read this manual. It’s beautifully crafted and free on-line.
