The Blog/News Peanut Butter Cup

Just in case you needed any more evidence that the friction between blogs and mainstream news operations is completely imagined, you might want to go back and watch some of this morning’s coverage of the Harriet Miers Supreme Ct nomination.

Just about every pundit I saw from Russert on down the list mentioned the early reaction from right wing blogs (which, it seems, can best be summarized thusly: “Huh?”).

So here we are again. Big media reading and quoting blogs, small media linking to and riffing off of big media stories. And a reality that never existed getting debunked once again.

Concentration is important!
