I was not one of the big time bloggers who got sent a new laptop from Microsoft earlier this year, but maybe that’s a good thing considering all the hell they’re getting for taking and not all disclosing the corporate freebie (Bloggers Need to Come Clean NPR).

But it is a good reminder that bloggers, like journalists and lawmakers and researchers, often have complicated and sometimes conflicting relationships with the people and issues that they’re discussing. In this regard, my only saving grace is that I write for lots of different folks, rely on none of them particularly, and take aim at nearly all of them fairly regularly.
