The debacle at CBS over the Bush documents is pretty fascinating stuff. Of course the political side is juicy and spicy. But I find the substory about the powero fblogs more interesintg that the political questions. Looks one blog -- Powerline --got this thing started on Thursday and things just mushroomed. By Friday Dan Rather had to make a special statement on the news to address what was happening. This certainly reflects a tectonic shift in the way information is disseminated. Early in our Republic's history news was wide spread and democatized -- it didn't take much to have newspaper. Then over time large media took over. Looks like news/info is getting deomcratized again.
