As an editors & expert blogger do you have any personal advice to give someone that wants to start a blog?
Exactly for the case of those who want to become editors, bloggers, and journalist. They should consider the legal environment ( Territory and country's law of media) and the local cultures in the area. In many countries there is legal limit of freedom of information of which journalists should flow. World wide, journalist, editors, and bloggers are running risk of being accused of defamation, libel etc. For the case of "Protecting the Right of Access to information". It is what to protect journalist activists and their sources of facts and news. Journalists should therefore be free to seek information and disseminate them correctly and accurately. For it to be achieved. There must be a firm and transparent rule supported by the government that controls the behaviors of society and its professionals.
