HERE'S A STORY ON BLOGS AND THE COMING WAR:
CNN owned the story of the first Gulf War -- blogs and the Internet may carry the day if there is a sequel.
Just as the 1991 conflict was the testing ground for 24-hour cable channels like CNN more than 10 years ago, a second conflict there may serve as a trial by fire for the news and commentary sites known as blogs.
I actually think the Afghan War did that, but this is a pretty good article.
