Blogs in The Boston Globe
The Globe has a story on political blogs that you might find interesting. Oliver Willis gets a big plug, as does Howard Dean’s blog. Unlike other stories on blogging that I’ve seen in the press, there’s not much to disagree with in this one. The story also raises a question I ask myself sometimes:
But as the mass of online opinion grows, some skeptics question whether every supporter’s passing thought deserves a public platform, or whether the musings of an almost anonymous voter are worth reading. Even among the wired, there is a debate over whether blogs are a new form of discourse or simply an endless feedback loop, a self-enclosed circle of political junkies echoing and challenging one another.
