one thing blogs are not good for, with rare exceptions: covering breaking news like yesterday's london attacks. everybody feels like they have to say something, but obviously the msm are the ones with the resources and sources to have the basic info at a given moment. so the blogs start doing what blogs do best: bickering. truly it was horrendous yesterday to read, for example, michelle malkin, who started squawking about what the "moonbats" were saying after the achingly redundant condemnation. why is that worth reading? or for that matter why read the people she's arguing against? better to just do something else.
