Forbes has written a scathing attack on the blogosphere, calling web logs as the “prized platform of an online lynch mob spouting liberty but spewing lies, libel and invective.”
The article by Dan Lyons said blogs started as online diaries but later became the “ultimate vehicle for brand-bashing, personal attacks, political extremism and smear campaigns.”
Lyons added in his article:
It’s not easy to fight back: Often a bashing victim can’t even figure out who his attacker is. No target is too mighty, or too obscure, for this new and virulent strain of oratory.
