The ethics of food blogging

Posted By on Fri, May 1, 2009 at 6:00 PM

This post just went up on the New York Times Diner's Journal blog about the ethics of food blogging. In it, Kim Severson asks "Should a food blogger follow the same ethics as a traditional food journalist?"

I have so much to say on this topic I should probably muzzle myself to keep from making this an all-out rant. I will say that it must be difficult for non-professionals to navigate what's ethical and what's not when many traditional food journalists push the ethical boundaries (media dinners, freebies etc.). But disclosure is key, and I applaud any effort to give guidance on that front.
