Companies which dooce

Boing Boing has produced a list of organizations which have fired people for blogging (or dooced them). It’s interesting to note the number of media organizations in this list. I wonder whether this is due to a conflict of interest, breaking privileges or codes of practice (as I discuss here), or whether it’s simply because more journalists blog since they are so familiar with the written word.
