Regulating The Bloggers




The Mainstream Media just hate the Bloggers, here is another thinly veiled attack and call for legal regulation of bloggers by Mikhailovich in todays Times.

The MSM have been bought and sold by wealthy men trying to curry favour with the 646, not with us. Most Newspapers are heavily subsidised or are going bust.

They are part of the problem, part of this corrupt establishment of Politicians,Bankers and faux Aristos that are trying to turn back the clock so that we are the Serfs they are the elite.

Peter Poppet calls it the post democratic age.



Every national newspaper has a legal team to check stories for defamatory content and to see if they serve the public interest. Few blogs can say the same. If bloggers were made aware that their anonymity was not always absolutely guaranteed, then arguably they would be just a tiny bit more careful. So perhaps the occasional outing is just the level of control that the blogging community needs.

Control by who chucky? people like you ?

Peter Poppet is a cunt and I stake my reputation on that.

Bit patronising that article. How superior they are and how bloggers are blood thirsy, slavering oiks bent on no good, intimidation and violence.

How about a campaign where everyone who reads bloggs stops buying dead trees for a week/month this would shut them right up.

Somehow I cannot see les freres Barclay having the same world views as m'self. Murdoch? So far up Pekings arse that it defies belief. Grauniad? Technically not owned by one punter but don't mention the feminazis. Independent? Going to Mr Lebedev. Compare the oligarch dot com. Is simple!

Nice idea, how about for good?

Could go viral - seriously, why not?

It's pure and simple sour grapes. The MSM can't handle the fact that bloggers are gaining more credibility by the day - and so, want them 'outed.'

"Every national newspaper has a legal team to check stories for defamatory content and to see if they serve the public interest".

The Sunday Mirror is reporting "Madeleine McCann suspect Raymond Hewlett".

That is defamatory content. The McCanns pointing their grubby fingers at others does not make them a suspect. I fail to see how it serves the public interest for the MSM to hound innocents when the guilty parties to the crimes are allowed to escape justice.

How about the public deciding what serves the public interest?

Anyone know how to defrost a chest freezer without the contents going off?

This will get tacit government approval as the won't like the blogosphere any more than the MSM. Far to free for their liking. They will curb the net incrementally using allsorts of worthy sounding pretexts. And of course using well meaning useful idiots who want something making illegal. Doesn't matter what the pretext is. It will provide more excuses to monitor and collar people.

they can fawkes off , we have been living in media controlled and under the spell of socialism , and look what good its done !.There are so few real investgative journalism pieces (the stasi get to them early) .Plenty of coffe table stuff .

It is always the way of socialism , it doesnt like being held to account , comes with the wonk ideaological geography.

No use them putting the frightners on us now , they have been sussed .

Dont get me wrong I am not bothered about said public servant getting a parking ticket , blogging that sort of rubbish is meaningless pap , and perhaps they do get fed up with every party making a dinner out of and sniping at minor slips , but that is no reason to try and stop questions .

where would be if guido hadnt mentioned Hains undeclared donations , of if unredcated expenses hadnt been given to telegraph , by SAS bloke sick of corruption.

This sort of freedom seems worth fighting for to me , until as you say OH they return to being public servants on there honour !!

I haven't bought a paper for years now, and never will again.

Newspapers, as a medium, are finished and they know it. Let them all go bust - the sanctimonious, corrupt motherfuckers!

Twitter, blogging and Youtube is the real-time sourcing of news information. The printed newsheet is history.

harcsdap said...

Does anyone else get loads of error messages on The Times? I tried to comment and got one. I get them when navigating their site too.

Anyhow,

Who are they to want to control bloggers? They just don't get freedom and liberty do they. We are free to publish what we like and accept the consequences when doing so. There is no need for 'control'.

The desire for the MSM to control blogging is very sinister and driven by jealousy and survival, and they will lose. Bloggers can do exactly what the papers do but at bugger all cost of production and distribution and can get useful feedback from readers at no added cost. If business, Governments started giving routine access to bloggers then many an expense account is at risk too.

What the news repeaters have fallen into is believing the cache of saying 'I write for The Times' is greater than being able to say 'I write for myself'.

There may be departments checking against libel but I'd be surprised if they are deciding what is and isn't in the public interest. It's a very specific defence against legal action so it's really a retrospective thing. If they printed only what was genuinely in the public interest the papers wouldn't be filled with so much shite.

harcsdap said...

I posted this to the article. I wonder if it will get published:

"... the problems posed by [blogs] unregulated outlaw status increase."

You mistake regulation for legislation. Being unregulated does not equal being illegal except perhaps in the Corporatist Paradise of the United Kingdom. Regulation is not needed.


Should have added 'Neither is legislation.'

I have pretty well given up posting to The Times and other newspaper sites. The cunts censor it so heavily it's not worth the bother. I drifted away from buying newspapers and now I find myself drifting away from their websites to blogs which are far more interesting.

Anna Mikhailova seems to be just out of university yet she's already sounding like some middle aged pious establishment twat who knows best about everything. They all seem to getting that way. Nick Ferrari is another. Listen to him on LBC and all you'll get is bollocks about racism and feminism. He used to be pretty good when he was anti everything. LBC used to be good 10 years ago, now it's gone the way of the rest, you can really notice the dumbing down over the years.

It's not surprising people gravitate towards blogs given what's on offer elsewhere. I wonder how long it will be before the establishment and EU cunts come after them. Not long, I'll bet.

Listened to TalkSport recently? What a waste of time that station has become.

If they take away my blog, (let the bastards try) I may have to amuse myself by torching the odd police station or send some dodgy substance to parliament.

How ironic that they defend newspapers' ability to use...

"...a legal team to check stories for defamatory content."

But in the same article call Justin McKeating (the non-anonymous author of the 'Chicken Yoghurt' blog) a 'nutter'.

An anonymous Old Holborn blog reader said...

The difference between blogs and newspaper websites:

On this blog, I would be allowed to call Anna Mikhailova a cunt. OH would not attempt to stop me doing so, nor would he delete this from the blog.

On the Times website, I could submit a comment calling Anna Mikhailova a cunt. The moderators would never allow such a comment through. And if the comment doesn't appear on-screen, it was never written, right?

Is it in the public interest to call someone a cunt? In some cases, yes.

Mitch said...

Ok then I wont buy a paper for the next month, whos with me?

Ps I will tell the times via their comments why.

A piece in The Independent said much the same thing on Saturday. No, I didn't buy it, there were copies going free in a local foody pub ( such is their desperation ).

They're having similar problems in the US, must be a bug going round.

Good idea to boycott the newspapers. I can't join you cos I already gave em up some years ago. Don't watch any BBC channels either. feel much healthier in mind and body as a result. Give it a go, you won't regret it. TV and modern media destroy families.
