blogging is essentially journalism.  i believe that the same code should apply.

imo, blogging is not the same as journalism. rules are a little more loose. but there should still be a line where one cannot disparage another. No libel, unless you can back it up.

you can justify all you want with all seriousness the presence of the easter bunny in blogging but you can't do that in a newspaper, unless it's satirical and it's known as such. but you can't claim by naming so and so had an abortion without proof.
