Blogging with a Blue Dress On

While politics and political bloggers are the hot topics these days, there are plenty of other personal publishers putting together the pieces on other kinds of stories (for example, internet and tech trends). Unfortunately, sometimes mainstreamers choose to simply borrow the ideas that they find on a blog.

During the rise of the bloggers and the stir caused by the Rather story, I’ve been wondering what things would have been like if bloggers had been this ubiquitous during the Clinton years when we saw media explosions over topics ranging from Vince Foster to Monica Lewinsky. Who would have been hurt the most? Mainstream media, Clinton, or Ken Starr?

Yeah, you’re right. It probably would’ve been Linda Tripp.

Concentration is important!
