Before you read any further there is a deliberate irony in the use of the word exclusive in the title of this thread. 'Exclusive', when referring to a news story, generally means that this story has only been released to one news source. Obviously the story that Craig Eastmond has signed a new long term deal at the club is about as exclusive to anotherarsenalblog as the news that the UK are at war in Afghanistan or that Kevin Davies' elbows are lethal weapons.
Blogging has changed the way the media works, it is a completely unregulated form of information, even less regulated than the wildly inaccurate Wikipedia. This means that anything one reads should be taken with a pinch of salt. It also means that those who write should respect the etiquette of the web, and part of that for me is that anything that is written about is sourced.
For example the completely second hand Craig Eastmond story is from Arsenal.com, as is the story about Cesc coming back from the Bolton game is also from the club's site. I know this is a particularly anal point but stories shouldn't just be pinched, then passed off as one's own, and these days the Internet makes it pretty obvious when one tries to do that. Sorry for boring you with my anally retentive ranting, that is something that is rather exclusive to anotherarsenalblog.
