Negative blogs

Dave Winer posted a comment today about misinformation he's read recently in blogs. The comments he mentions are comments about himself. Somewhat understandably he doesn't link to them as this would take more traffic to them. However this lack of linking means the other users of the internet are not aware where these sites are. Instead we are left to do our own searching of blogs to find them and link to them. Doesnt' that break the whole concept of blogging? As Dave says, and all should know, the information you get on blogs is not 100 percent accurate.
