I'd like to write something in a personal blog of mine but was wondering something about citing company names. It only mentions it in passing and I'm certainly not saying anything bad about the company. It's something that's in the news, mainstream. But I wasn't sure how to cite the name of the company.

Could anyone give me some hints? Thanks. Hopefully I have made myself clear. Today, I have had the misfortune of being misunderstood! I sure hope tomorrow goes better...

You can link to the company's web page if you're not directly linking to and quoting the original news source. If you do that then the original source takes care of the cite. These are just my opinion, btw, based on the blog reading I do. I hope to hear from others if I'm incorrect, but it seems pretty standard usage (what I said above).

This would be a great post for the blogging forum, btw - there are some pretty savvy folks hanging out there who might have a better answer than I do.

I've, in fact, moved the thread to blogging. :)
