Just my opinion, as usual. No sources given.
Outlandish statements- that is in the eye of the beholder.
Blogs are the new media, and they have broken multiple news stories ahead of the old legacy mainstream media. There's nothing inherently false about information appearing on a blog.
there are no unbiased sources. The worst are those that pretend to be unbiased.
Trolling is not making statements that are out of the mainstream, unpopular, or contrary to one particular party line. Trolling is not defined by reading and sharing blogs. It's not trolling just because you disagree.
Trolling is repetitively posting deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument,it's turning every thread into the troll's particular hobby horse, no matter what the original post was actually about.
