Tina Brown on Rather and Bloggers

A terrific column by Tina Brown in the Washington Post on the Dan Rather/CBS thing:
“…Now the conventional wisdom is that the media will be kept honest and decent by an army of incorruptible amateur gumshoes [and their blogs]. In fact, cyberspace is populated by a coalition of political obsessives and pundits on speed who get it wrong as much as they get it right. It's just that they type so much they are bound to nail a story from time to time …”
That sounds about right.
