Had the blogger taken the trouble to check his scoop...
In our multicultural age how can a self-styled historian and cultural commentator who thinks Krishna is a Buddhist deity be taken seriously? As Norman Lebrecht wrote back in 2006:
Until bloggers deliver hard facts … paid for newspapers will continue to set the standard as the only show in town ... that is the real scandal and it could have been exposed had the blogger taken the trouble to check his scoop ... the supposed fraud shows up the flaws of a classical blogosphere that trades in unchecked trivia ... online blogs won't become required reading until they start focussing on the facts.New Overgrown Path posts are available via RSS/email by entering your email address in the right-hand sidebar.
