Viral fact checking

Okay, so the mass media attention to weblogs has officially tipped, thanks to the blogger manifesto and a host of articles from microcontent news. Yesterday’s article in the daily standard, “Reading, Writing, and Blogging” is yet another of what will be the landslide of articles touting or discrediting P2P Journalism. What I found facinating from this one was the mention of Smartertimes, a site deditacted to fact-checking stories in the New York Times.
