Routing Around the Conventional Media

After reading CNET commentary editor Charles Cooper shred the convention bloggers as hayseeds and "cybertourists," I've written a response to revoke his credentials.

In a telling quote from his commentary, Cooper defines the success of webloggers by whether the professional media admires their work, writing that "I'm sure many from the world of mainstream media left town thinking they had little to worry about if this is the best the blogging world can produce."

Though I'd love to find out that Brian Williams, Shepard Smith and other media luminaries took a little time out from their pancake makeup sessions to catch up with Dave and Duncan, why should bloggers care about impressing the outage they're trying to route around?


Uh, where'd all the previous comments go??

On the article.

Whoops. Pahdon me, I thought I could find it again on the main page and mistook this for that for a sec. Didn't realize you had a whole separate "articles" section. How embarrassin. Nevermind and as you were.
