I agree about the Newsweek

I agree about the Newsweek article. Like most conventional-media coverage of blogging, it isn’t particularly inaccurate, but is condescending in tone. It focuses more on the use of blogs by teenagers than on the increasingly significant counterweight that people like Glenn Reynolds, Andrew Sullivan and Mickey Kaus are providing to mainstream news sources. The Newsweek article mentions the war bloggers, which I guess is the category we fall into even though we write about lots of stuff other than the war, but again fails to suggest the extent to which blogs have become important clearinghouses for information for the segment of our population that is most concerned (and most knowledgeable) about current events.
