Are bloggers polluting cyberspace?

From a report by The Committee on Culture and Education in the European Parliament:

The emergence of new media has brought more dynamic and diversity into the media landscape; the report encourages responsible use of new channels. In this context the report points out that the undetermined and unindicated status of authors and publishers of weblogs causes uncertainties regarding impartiality, reliability, source protection, applicability of ethical codes and the assignment of liability in the event of lawsuits. It recommends clarification of the legal status of different categories of weblog authors and publishers as well as disclosure of interests and voluntary labelling of weblogs."

Yet another sign that politicians are not in sync with the times, or with the people for that sake? I wonder how they are to make it happen...
