The reason why..
IT'S ALL THE BLOGGERS' FAULT. AGAIN.
One day a serious analysis of the 2004 Presidential Election will dissect the role Bloggers had - without them:
The Swift Boat Story would not have been aired.
CBS would have got away with a fake story.
And the whole MSM (main stream media)would not have been on their guard, as they now are, against the force of distributed knowledge fact-checking them.
And because Bloggers come from all sides both sides have to be more truthful - which must be a good thing.
Well done Blogosphere.
