Report on "Hands off Iran" protest
After hundreds of years of inaccountability of the mainstream media, the public has finally found a means to hit back.
Blog pressure from left, right, centre, back and forwards to act as a source of criticism and as a source of information.
BBC has developped a policy towards their own employees setting up such sites and do apparantly not allow political opinions etc.
Bloggers have already helped to bring down or damage two very important media figures in the United States.
One was Dan Rather of CBS News, who came a cropper after a report on "60 Minutes Wednesday" in September 2004.
The other major scalp was the Chief News Executive at CNN, Eason Jordan. He had made some remarks at a discussion in Davos in January 2005 about journalists being possibly targeted by US troops.
Of course, one has to remember that most blogs have political agendas. Many of them are on the right of the spectrum.
The fifth Big Blether will take place from Friday 5th - Sunday 7th May 2006 at Laurieston Hall, Dumfries.
Laurieston Hall is a housing co-operative situated 7 miles from Castle Douglas. The Big Blether is Scotland's biggest activist gathering and takes place every 2 years in Scotland.
