Bloggers "Rewriting the Rules of Journalism"

There’s a good overview in USA Today on the fast-rising influence of bloggers as opinion leaders, and how popular blogs are increasingly setting the agenda for what’s news and what isn’t.

Plus, there’s a good quote to boot:

”When I first got up here, I thought blogging was an Irish dance,” says Tricia Enright, a longtime Capitol Hill press secretary who earlier this year became communications director for Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean.

I saw this over on Daily Kos, where Kos is worried that having a screenshot of his site in a USA Today cover story means that it’s jumped the shark. Heh. We all should have such problems!

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
