Howard Kurtz ser på bloggscenen i USA, og er innom mange vinkler:
Why are the best blogs sometimes more compelling than the «Senator Jones said yesterday» style of too much newswriting? Because the bloggers have a voice and emotions and are speaking directly to you. Because they’re up front about their biases. Newspaper stories often seem like straitjackets, incremental, dulled-down, written in a sort of insider’s code. Plus, blogs are faster, which is part of the reason that Washingtonpost.com and a number of other newspaper sites have either hired outsiders to write columns or put staffers in touch with their inner blogger.
