Overrated but not necessarily inconsequential

CBS News posts its report on the McCain blogger outreach call. The report includes quotes from Ed Morissey and me. I’m quoted, accurately, as saying “I think as a general matter, the influence of blogs and their readers is somewhat overrated.” But overrated is not the same thing as inconsequential.
JOHN agrees: I sometimes say that we tend to be overrated by the small slice of the population that has heard of us. However, my experiences in Washington over the last couple of days confirmed once again that some of our readers are definitely influential. Which doesn’t mean, of course, that we have any particular influence on them.
