Blogger Pleads Not Guilty To Charges

This is another strange story out of Seoul South Korea. A South Korean blogger pleaded not guilty Saturday to charges that he spread false economic information on the Internet. A news report said the case drew heated debate over freedom of speech.

Although the blogger was identified only by his surname Park, he gained prominence among South Koreans because of some of his dire predictions about the global economy. I thought I had read that some false information about the economy on the Internet had really upset some things and guess it was true. One of the items he blogged about was the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Later on, this proved to be correct. Isn't that something?
