the problem with the traditional media - generously I would say - not in terms of bias but as a function of the "if it bleeds it leads" tendency.

There's also, probably, a factor of laziness. Reading some of the MSM's reporting is like reading a "rip-and-read" version of DNC talking points. I wonder how many reporters don't actually do the work of investigating a story, but rely upon the latest propaganda dump from their allies on the left?

the "if it bleeds it leads" tendency.

Tony would be too diplomatic to point out that if it doesn't bleed enough, we'll make some up.

I meant "they'll" make some of, of course.

Does someone at the WH actually read blogs, or FR, to get a feel of what we are thinking?

Or do they just give you info and such?

I hope they do take our opinions and ideas to heart.

Snow predicted that service people would begin using their own video cameras and sites such as YouTube and LiveLeak to get the word out.

Stryker cams!

Tony mentioned that he reads all of the blogs that were represented in the conference call.

Bloggers aren't afraid to tell the truth:

LEFTISTS DON'T WANT TO WORK.

They want free health care, free food, free college education, free housing free clothing, and with all of those things, they don't have to work. The screaming college chanters can remain perpetual professional students and the perpetual "victims" in our cities (you know who you are) can sit and wallow in their self-inflicted misery. And the poor saps who DO work get to pay for these parasites. Ann Coulter nailed it when she pointed out that whenever leftists have a temper tantrum they call a "boycott work" day. It's comes natural to them.

I don't want to work either, but I do. The difference is, I save as much as I possibly can so I can retire early. I don't scream, pout, and throw temper tantrums like a spoiled child.

Society demands an incentive to work. For eight thousand years people have "worked", whether it was performing tasks in the village, hunting, farming, or producing valuable goods. The incentives were many: food, shelter, clothing, etc. Perhaps these can be alleviated for the truly destitute, but there must be something. Leftists don't have to like it -- they can decide not to care for themselves and perish if they wish -- but society must not cater to the slothful.

To: everyone

The blogs are a drop in the bucket. They influence the handful of people who read them. They do not influence the vast herd of sheeple. The Big Three networks and the big newspapers are still the name of the game, and that's why the liberals still rule.
