Power of blogging to get attention, using discernment on the internet

The internet is surely a place for news and info you won't ever see on main stream media.

But, the essential element is using your own discernment to see if the news is worthy or just disinformation being placed as a campaign to dumbify viewers.  IMHO, there is plent of worthy news and even more disinfo being published by those whose want to control one something or another.

Anyways, in China this morning there is a blogging story that cost a top political boss his job and reputation. I would call this a quality example of the power of the internet proving real news.....

Communist party official sacked after pictures of him having sex with his mistress are leaked online

A Chinese Communist Party official has been sacked after images of him having sex with his mistress were posted on blogging websites.

Lei Zhengfu, a district party chief in the southwestern city of Chongqing, was fired after an investigation by the party's discipline watchdog confirmed that it was he who appeared in the video, the state-run Xinhua news agency said.

The case highlights the influence of China's fast-growing blogging community, and the ruling Communist Party's increasing sensitivity to public anger over abuse of power, official impunity and corruption.

The agency reported on Thursday that Lei had told a reporter the video, shot in 2007, was a fake.

The party has stepped up its rhetoric against corruption, seeking to counter anger from citizens over regular reports of graft and debauchery among officials - but efforts to root out the problem are reported to have been ineffective.

Bo, who also faces possible charges of corruption and abuse of power, has yet to stand trial.
