Getting the Message

Some forward-thinking newspapers are starting to get the message that the blogs are the wave of the future.

The San Diego Union-Tribune recently began Insight Interactive, an "online forum sponsored by The San Diego Union-Tribune's Insight section and the newspaper's Web site, SignOn San Diego." The blog's moderator, Robert J. Caldwell, is the editor of the paper's Sunday Insight section of opinion and commentary. Caldwell is an outstanding journalist whose columns I consistently enjoy. He is hard hitting in his honesty, presents well researched facts, and is an excellent writer.

As an example, his article today is a powerful, thoughtful thank-you to our troops in Iraq. I only wish more of traditional media would articulate such proper gratitude to our military.
