Article highlights relationship between monks, military in Burma

This story from CNN today highlights the importance of new media in getting out information, even in a crisis or a government-controlled situation. I thought it was interesting towards the bottom when it discusses the potential role of Buddhist monks in Myanmar in helping with the rapidly evolving humanitarian crisis there.

The story is also interesting in the way it is using bloggers as a news source, but diminishing their source credibility by using words like alleged.
