The Mainstream Media is Just a Spectator

Something has happened in the war between the MSM and the New media - an inversion of sorts.  A couple of years ago, bloggers were pundits commenting on OPC - other people's content. The MSM did the footwork in investigative journalism and the bloggers acted as a competitive fringe that corrected any glaring errors.
But the inversion has occurred. In the Jeff Gannon scandal, the MSM can only comment on what the bloggers are doing. They are finding very strange connections, and the MSM simply plays it all off as a security breach. There's more to it than that.
Look out MSM, the bloggers are coming.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2005 -- Internet Bloggers are bringing accountability to the regular news media according to Michael Williams, whose popular Blog entitled “Master of None” is visited daily by fifteen hundred or more people worldwide. During a two part Blogging Special Full Disclosure cable and internet television program Williams said bloggers are playing an important role by acting as fact checkers when competing news outlets have refused to criticize one another’s mistakes.
