Today's bloggers are doing the job Editors are paid to do. Makes me wonder if Mitchel and his editor buddies spend the work day hanging out at the "Gay Bar."

The bloggers from the Northern Alliance Radio Network show do a feature called, "The Week in Gate-keeping," which mocks the argument that the mainstream press is superior because it has editors and fact-checkers to keep the mistakes out. It's my favorite part of their show.

[Hillary Clinton] said, "We're all going to have to rethink how we deal with the Internet. As exciting as these new developments are, there are a number of serious issues without any kind of editing function or gatekeeping function."

People who work at journalism full time ought to be able to do a better job of it than people for whom it is a hobby. But that's not going to happen as long as we "professional" journalists ignore stories we don't like and try to hide our mistakes. We think of ourselves as "gatekeepers." But there is not much future in being a gatekeeper when the walls are down.
