Strolling thru the blogworld, I often run into things where I'm like, "Huh? What was that again?" So just to keep bloggers alert - and we should all remember that some of them are journalists - this blog will be a space for occasionally highlighting some of these "Huh?" things.
Amit Varma has left a comment on my post in which he is of the view that I was being a bit irresponsible in linking to Purvi's blog. Because a claim Purvi has made about India Uncut "is simply untrue. It's a lie."
There's some discussion here about the merits of Purvi's and Amit's cases. For the moment, I have nothing much to say about that.
I have a couple of questions though, which I think concern all of us who blog.
First, if I link to a blog, am I responsible for the content of that blog? Content of all the posts there? Is my linking to a blog, my subscribing to its point of view?
Amit also asks:
Is clicking on the links in question and reading them for yourself too much fact-checking to expect?
