Blogger exposes Reuters. AOL releases search logs

0 comments

Not too long ago I had written if we can trust the Indian newspapers. Jeez! We can’t trust Reuters as well. Reuters admited and pulled down doctored photograph of burning buildings in Beirut after a blogger exposed the same. What’s up with the media lately ? Are they losing out to bloggers ? The decline and fall of traditional media ;-)

Elsewhere, AOL research has released search logs of 657,427 randomly selcted users. AOL appologized and has inititated an inquiry. Meanwhile if you want to download the search queries, check out one of these mirrors. These are the same search queries which Google had refused to hand over to uncle Sam. WTF? They are AOL queries. But AOL search engine is powered by Google. ;-)
