The fact that a story in Business Week about the founder of Digg (Kevin Rose) has got so many ‘diggs’ on Digg, makes you wonder about the bias that occurs on the community edited site. The story ‘BusinessWeek DIGGS Cover Boy Kevin Rose – Millionaire! Valley Boy!‘ had 4113 votes (or diggs) when we visited the community-edited tech news site, making the story that was only added to the site yesterday, the second most popular in a month’s worth of stories. The recent Digg-attack on the launch of the new Netscape service was a great example of the bias that Digg has to report on itself rather than tech news.

Don’t get us wrong. We love Digg and the access to content we’d never normally find through traditional media – it just seems to run on mob mentality a little too often.
