The Bangalore Times “supplement” of this morning’s Times of India (TOI) has an article called Sabre-rattling in cyber space, which talks about the controversy about Indra Nooyi’s recent comments. (I’m not going there.)
The article discusses the reaction of the blogosphere to the controversy and essentially is a collection of quotes from (what appears to be) different blogs. What was interesting was that the writer (Panchalee Thakur) did not mention even one blog’s address. Are journalists this unaware of acceptable use and quoting policies? Or is this just journalistic hubris? When bloggers quote each other, there’s always an attribution. How come a big newspaper like TOI sees no need to do this?
Or this it just not surprising anymore, given the way journalism is going now-a-days?
