as is pointed out here blogs can range from the idiotic to the erudite..
(same as the mainstream media)..
the blanket dismissal of this new beast/genre by many mainstream media journalists is both foolish and a case of panic/denial…
this writer makes the telling point that every journalists knows there are those out there who know more about, or can make intelligent comment on, virtually every story they do..
there is now a venue for those voices ….and that’s choice, eh?…..
