Who Has Higher Standards - Bloggers or the NYT Sunday Business Section?

This isn't just some guy in pajamas asking this question. It is billionaire businessman (and blogger) Mark Cuban. Cuban really seem to want this question answered and my guess is he's leaning toward the bloggers being the more responsible party when it comes to the truth.

To me the answer isn't simple. The New York Times may be best suited to bringing a myriad of issues you may not otherwise have thought about or learned about but give me a blogger with first hand knowledge of a subject over a generalist journalist who has no first hand knowledge other than the reporting they are attempting to get done on deadline.
