Start Naming Names

The segment HNIC did on Saturday regarding some of the hockey blogs has of course created some great conversation.

Probably the best thing I have read about it comes from Tom Benjamin at his NHL weblog,

I’m really tired of the unsupported criticism - advanced in the story by Kevin Allen - about the lack of accountability and journalistic ethics in the blogosphere. First, I think my readers hold me accountable. Every time I make a mistake, I hear about it in spades and so does everyone who reads the comments on the blog.

Second, if this really is a problem, it is time to name names instead of throwing it out as a general criticism. Which post or blogger violates or has violated the ethics of hockey journalism? Who has been irresponsible? Which opinion falls outside the boundaries of fair comment? Support the criticism with some evidence or shut up about it.
