Hinterland Diary

John Stoehr

The most reasoned discussion of blogging's value yet . . .

But [bloggers] are, more often than not, trademarks of the kind of journalism that makes a difference. And if there is anything bloggers want more than an audience, it's knowing they are making a difference in politics. They are, to give them their due, changing what is euphemistically called the national "conversation." But what is the nature of that change? Does it deepen our understanding? Does it broaden our perspective?

From "All the noise that fits: The hard-line opinions on weblogs are no substitute for the patient fact-finding of reporters" by Michael Skube for the Los Angeles Times
