Friday, December 22, 2006 The Media Mob: 'Written by partisans to be read by the naive'

From John Bambenek:

"What blogs do accomplish, at least the few that actually try to be media instead of diary, is fact-check the 'objective journalists.' This is where the real contempt for bloggers comes from. Blogs have outted journalistic frauds that would have gone undiscovered despite all the checks and balances in the traditional media."
