KARL ROVE comments on the Army of Davids:
Rove considers Memogate a watershed in the rise of the alternative media.
“The whole incident in the fall of 2004 showed really the power of the 'blogosphere',” he said in his West Wing office.
“Because in essence you had now, an army of self-appointed experts looking over the shoulder of the mainstream media and bringing to bear enormously sophisticated skills,” he added.
Still, Rove cautioned that the Internet’s political potential has a darker side.
Like all things. And the Bush Administration's ineptitude where the ports story is involved demonstrates that it's always a two-edged sword.
