Blogging on Syria from the Middle East: Ethical Reporting?

My former Journalism Adviser is currently in the Middle East reporting for his own Blog.  Is he doing a good job? Check it out here:

Can't figure out how to post this, so I'll comment it here because I think it is relevant...

The headline on this page seems to be accurate, however the headline summarizing this article on the homepage reads "Putin to America: You're Not Special"

Not sure this headline is entirely accurate, changed the words around to make it seem more sensational. Is this ethical? hmmmm...

This guy went to the Middle East to do his own reporting. He wrote: "I don’t pretend to have all the answers. But, I do have a lot more questions."

Full ethical marks.
