Progress, Of A Sort

Ace makes a great point: in the past, the legacy media simply dismissed bloggers with a wave of their upturned nose. Today, they run polls in which they attempt to highlight their accuracy:

The very fact they now have to argue they’re more accurate is, well, pretty big.

Before it was just assumed. Blogs were simply dismissed.

Now they have to do “studies” and write arguments to convince people they’re more accurate.

Hey, would Reuters, CBS, The New York Times, the BBC, the Associated Press and Newsweek lie to you?

But don’t worry, Captain Smith says there are plenty of lifeboats. And Baghdad Bob says those aren’t a stream of M1 Abrams on the horizon.
