OLD MEDIA SLIP-SLIP-SLIPPIN'

DanratherthumbDropping the anchorman: Dan Rather's retirement marks a welcome change in American journalism [The Economist]

A pretty good assessment of the current mediascape-in-transition, and it will sound very familiar to anyone who has seen Blogumentary [$buy!].

My one qualm is this statement:

It is a safe bet that, if the current Bush administration goes the way of previous second-term administrations and becomes consumed by scandals, conservative bloggers will be in the forefront of the scandal-mongering.

What? Are you insane? Lefty bloggers will be at the forefront of sniffing out scandal in this White House. Conservative bloggers will be in the forefront of (a) Attacking the left, (b) Defending the Bush Administration at any cost, because the cause of neoconservatism (i.e. continuous war in the Middle East) clearly outweighs all other values beyond reason and beyond the pale.
