  2. This report is right on target. That’s why the “TAO of Journalism — Transparent, Accountable and Open” pledge and seal makes so much sense. It’s a voluntary promise to readers, viewers, and listeners that journalists of any kind — nonprofit, profit, mainstream, legacy, citizen, independent, bloggers, etc. — will be Transparent about who they are and how they’re funded, Accountable if they make mistakes, and Open to a wide range of other viewpoints. Simple as that! See more details at http://www.taoofjournalism.org. The concept is still new, but it’s gaining traction fast. Folks like Tom Stites of The Banyan Project and David Cohn of Spot.us have already taken the pledge, along with a lot of individual bloggers. College papers are signing up, as well (no charge for student papers). Just TAO it!
