Blogs are …

From today’s WSJ:

The fatuity matters more than the politics. If the blogs have enthusiastically endorsed Joseph Conrad’s judgment of newspapering–“written by fools to be read by imbeciles”–they have also demonstrated a remarkable ecumenicalism in filling out that same role themselves.

I disagree. Many blogs may fit this mold, but the time for safely making sweeping generalizations is over. You just cannot do that to 57 million blogs and be right. Or even half-way right.

    I’d disagree too if I new what all those big words meant…

    I’d just like to think that blogs are doing a fairly efficient job of communicating public opinion from the bottom upward. Something that’s been sorely missing in discourse. Especially if you’re one of those feeling disenfranchised by the “ratings and paycheck media.”
