Irony alert
Posted by: McQ on Friday, December 22, 2006

Rich Miller, Chicago Sun Times columnist, makes the point that our friend Joe Rago seemed to miss earlier this week when when writing about blogs:
This phenomenon is not going away, no matter how much it is dismissed or chastised. The Internet has been seized on as a democratizing tool by millions of perpetually democracy-hungry Americans. Bloggers should definitely be open to criticism by the mainstream media. That's America. But lumping everyone together with the crackpots is neither fair nor honest. And the fact that so many reporters and pundits can't seem to get the story right just proves the bloggers' point that too many of them don't know what they're talking about on everything else.
Yes, Joe ... that's irony.
