France bans citizen journalists from reporting violence

From InfoWorld, an article describing the French government’s attempt to reign in citizen journalists by making it an offense for anyone to film and distribute acts of violence unless they are sanctioned journalists. So, they are trying to unblur the very blurry lines between bloggers and journalists. I think along with that law, they should prohibit these sanctioned journalists from blogging. It might be too confusing for their citizens to distinguish between the real and the possibly not-real. That’s assuming, of course, that the journalists are always reporting what’s real.
