If this report is accurate, then it should be an interesting marriage — especially given ScienceBlogs experience with Pepsi, and National Geographic’s experience with… well, with all the brands that have successfully blown up the advertising-editorial divide at NGS.

I think there are many paid bloggers on those sites and they are extremely malicious-very unbecoming for National Geographic to even be associated with them.
