BLOGGING AND JOURNALISM
I’m still not sold. I think that there are a handful of weblogs out there that have sufficient readership to be considered truly important. A much larger, but still relatively small, fraction of the blogosphere consists of solid writing and analysis that’s better than all but the best political writing in the “real” media. But a much larger percentage of what’s written on blogs is sheer and utter crap.
Even for a small time paper, someone has to hire you. Anyone can sign on to Blogger to get a free account and start writing ungrammatical, uninformed nonsense.
