Jamesaritchie – 2009-10-09 7:47 AM I think that unless the government regulates ethics, there will be very little ethics out there. If teh business world hasn’t proven this ten thusand times over, nothing will. I don’t care if it’s in print, on TV, or on a blog, I want to know when people are being paid, or are receiving free merchandise. Without knowing this, I can’t trust anything someone says. .

Yep, I feel the same way. There’s a difference between being paid for an honest opinion, and being paid to write something favorable. I can bet you those who are being paid for their blogging opinions subscribe to the latter.
