Strange? No stranger than some of the leaks you've posted, Philip. Some people just like to undermine other people's hard work.

Leaked documents are part of journalism, and I'd say as old as journalism itself... so bloggers are not even touching new ground with this. (Example: cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/09/25/ni ...) And we should be happy about it, too, 'cause else the world would be left to press releases and official, polished statements, or partisan journalists only. That being said, every blogger or journalist of course needs to balance how much and which leaks to report on, partly in favor of keeping specific indivudals lifes private, partly in favor of reporting newsworthy items and not keeping the public in dark... and in these regards every blogger's/ journalist's/ newspaper judgment may vary.

This thread is locked as it's old... but you can create a new thread in the forum.
