Blogging Against the Big Boys

There’s an interesting article in The Washington Post on the whole ’blogging phenomenon (Blogger gets a mention, naturally). Not much to add, other than the observation that ’blogs — or any individual ’net publishing — also serves as one of the last bastions of independent “news” publishing out there, now that most of the major media are merging into a few massive corporate conglomerates. I don’t pretend that this kind of publishing can replace the mainstream media, but the very arguments against it — inaccuracy, bias, lack of “fairness” in reporting — could just as easily be leveled against any other, more established medium.

Only in the case of the big boys, those things are more often deliberate.
