Reading: Digby on bloggers, blog readers, and the media

Great piece by Digby, laying out (again*) the reason the lefty blog world is after the mainstream news media--and ruling out the false reasons:

Is it really too much to ask that the relationship between the press and the powerful be based upon healthy mutual skepticism and (even begrudging) respect for each others' jobs rather than boys locker room experiences? It seems to me we should have worked that through after this last round, but apparently the "Bush III" campaign (talk about dynasties) is going to reported in much the same way as Bush II --- hijinx and bar-b-q and assorted useless stupidities substituting for journalism.

Digby's post is going on the sidebar.

*Here's what I mean by again.
