Blogger Ethics

So the new bit of news is the two bloggers who were ont the payroll of the Dean campaign. One of whom, Markos Zuniga, can be found through the Daily Kos link to the right. They were exposed by Zephyr Teachout on her blog as having recieved money ($3000 per month) to push Howard Dean in their writings. She said the following:

With the growing importance of blogs -- short for Web logs -- Ms. Teachout said she thinks bloggers need to rethink their attitudes toward ethics.

Not to be a lazy bum, but ethics is not really my job. Sure, I have them. Whether or not they are up to snuff is a decision left to you folks. I thank those of you who spend the most valuable resource you have, namely your time, in reading this weblog. Whether you continue to do so, and your reasons for choosing either way, is entirely up to you.

In the meantime, I'll keep writing. Enjoy it if you like it.
