Blogs, unbiased media?
Ashwini Kachapeswaran in the article "Logged out, Blogged in" proclaimed: "Blog is the future of the net. Free and unbiased information is what blogs promise to tell." This must be one of the most bizarre proclamations in the history of the Internet. Blogs unbiased?! It's proprietary media which has promised and keeps promising to be unbiased. True to its shameful tradition, however, most of the proprietary media has always been shamelessly biased. Blogs on the other hand have never promised to be unbiased. By their nature, blogs are intrinsically biased.
