The Media vs Bloggers

The media are monitored by bloggers and are called on the carpet when ever they are their talking heads are wrong on something . The response is almost instant . The networks and cable should stop paying talking heads big money to appear on their shows and start reading the instant blogs .

Blogs are conversations

So they don't lend themselves to television, which is all about presenting stone tablets of "news" and not at all about learning what people actually think.

At least so it seems to me.
