Bloggers, valid be thy name

Michael Wilbon and Jeffrey Goldberg have lathered up various corners of the Internet today with similar cries of derision over just what these lousy blogger types thing they're doing, anyway. Certainly not any reporting! Or anything that's credentialed! No sir. And, because I read it in the same afternoon as these others, I'll throw Daily Show producer Adam Chodikoff's practice of never looking to blogs for information into the mix. However, ya know, I love TDS, and the product they turn out serves mainly to skewer the MSM right along with the silly politicians, so sticking with MSM resources is probably right. But it's a big day for brushing aside the validity of this particular medium, for some reason. My favorite take downs are here and here.

Oh, while you're at it, go read some good reporting from blogger Ezra Klein.
