Anonymous bloggers rejoice!

Posted on Wed, Jun 1, 2005 at 10:10 AM

Well, isn't everyone just atwitter over the revelation of Deep Throat's identity after all these years. Everybody's using the occasion to hype the value of leaks and anonymous sources. Writers of Vermont's two anonymously sourced political blogs (VT Politics and Politics VT)are no doubt feeling vindicated.

And I'm delighted that our own local mini-throats are taking matters into their own hands and setting up blogs to publish their thoughts, but something about their modus operandi still bugs me. I think it's the fact that Deep Throat had a filter — namely Woodward and Bernstein. Who's the accountable filter for these anonymous blogs?
