The Blogger Centipede: How Content is Eroding Credibility

As pervasive as the Internet has become, so has the notion that free content must be free for others to take. Plagiarism proves a constant issue, although a quick use of Google can spot offenders about as easily as it helps them, and bloggers find the concept of their “exclusives” rendered null and void almost instantly. How dumb must some be to take what isn’t theirs? How smart must others be to avoid merely regurgitating the latest press release? How heavily should we allow access to dictate content? How well are we serving an audience if it’s easier to put a question mark in the headline instead of making an honest-to-goodness phone call or two? How long can we wait to break news, and how much sourcing do we owe our readers? With the right combination of participants, I promise you that, while we may not be able to answer of these questions definitively, it'll make for a heated and humorous discussion as to what our news and opinions are truly worth at this moment* in our field. (*well, THAT moment in March; I can't imagine things will be much different by then).
