I can't say that I fully agree with your assessment of the blog post in question. However I must agree that you make a very valid and relevant point about citizen journalists and some of the pitfalls that may lie in the path forward in the evolution of e-journalism.

Maybe it's time to have an on-line course or legal recommendations for citizen journalists here on RTH. I can see how the risks can be surprising; not properly citing copyrighted material, protection of sources, libel and slander laws... I'm sure this is an incomplete list. What is the legal difference between an op-ed piece and an article?

I think Bratina hopes to send a little chill down the spine of Hamilton's blogging community. I think he has only angered them but there may be a lesson embedded in his attack as well.
