Blogstream Media

Captain Ed posted his take on a news report about Pat Robertson expressing his position in his usual over-the top manner. The interesting thing about the post is in the comment thread. Readers questioned the context of the reported quote, and the author of the original article in the New York Daily News showed up and posted a more complete transcript. This seems indicative in a shift in the relation between the various media streams.

By the way, Robertson's overall position comes across as more typically conservative and less milleniallist theocrat in the longer transcript.

well, as a blogger myself, i try to be a little more hip ta da blogs...

I've tried to encourage my msm cohorts to engage with readers publicly with varying degrees of success ... I understand why they don't sometimes want to: it's time-consuming, and people aren't, uh, always polite. But I think we're going to have to, simply as a question of maintaining (salvaging?) our credibility...
