Blog insurance next?

A woman who writes a parenting blog announced that she bought media insurance to protect against getting sued for a “barbed” post.  She states, “You wouldn’t publish a newspaper without liability insurance, so you should take the same precautions with blogging, if you have any kind of audience or readership,” said Granju, 41, a Knoxville, Tennessee, resident.”

If this is true, its sad.  I understand purchasing insurance if blogging is connect to your livelihood but what about the millions of bloggers doing it for fun?  Are they going to be inhibited by the threat of lawsuits and shut down their blogs?
