Here's quite a discontented blog reader. Sorry, Joe, but the "blog mob" will be with us for a very long time. Click here for an illuminating example of why. The better blogs provide a depth of coverage, insight, and honesty that MSM can't, or won't, deliver.
Far from causing the demise of democracy, as Rago gloomily infers in his closing paragraph, blogs have clicked the media elites into worker mode. MSM can't feed "the masses" a load of garbage any more and expect us to swallow it whole. Reporters like Rago actually have to work now. Call us a "mob" full of "fools" and "imbeciles" if it makes you feel better, but bloggers are helping you keep your job. It takes you a lot more hours and vocabulary to sell what used to be a simple party line in a newspaper's articles and editorial columns.
Sorry to be such a bother.
