Common Sense from the Washington Times

The last few days have seen an outburst of hysteria from some MSM precincts directed at bloggers. We haven’t spent much time responding to these over-the-top attacks, but today’s Washington Times has some sensible comments, responding to yesterday’s somewhat weird editorial in the Wall Street Journal:

Throughout the “kerfuffle,” we have attempted to keep our readers informed about what Mr. Jordan said and why it mattered. To do so, we relied heavily on the fine reporting done by the blogosphere: Jim Geraghty of National Review Online, Edward Morrissey of Captain’s Quarters, John Hinderaker and Scott Johnson of Power Line, Michelle Malkin and numerous others. A few mainstream folks jumped on board as well, including the New York Post, the New York Sun, Investor’s Business Daily, Michael Barone of U.S. News & World Report and Lawrence Kudlow…
The meme among those outlets that didn’t provide coverage is that the bloggers were on a headhunting spree, when in fact very few called for Mr. Jordan’s immediate resignation. If any underlying theme could be found, it is called truth-hunting
