    Bloggers are going to be represented at the Conventions this year. Much of the big media are not happy about it either. LA Times has an article on it, not too complimentary. Oh well! They fill a void not being met by the media today:

    Maybe this will get the mainstream media to smarten up abit. But I doubt it.

    They have a major problem, those that are really into the news, :thanks: , are finding they are taking steps towards irrelevancy. We tend to influence more people than is normal, being able to give 'context' as the Perry piece indicates. The 'big media' stands a real chance of losing its base, those that have been the ones buying the papers for all these years. I still subscribe to 2. I get 3 weekly news magazines. Problem, by the time I get them, I've already read the important stuff and can rifle off a letter to the editor criticizing their coverage. Which I do with regularity, along with several I know.

    You bet. Why do you think the ADL is trying to censor the Internet with cries of "Hate on the Web"?
