Vyk Rubenfield of the Big Picture lays out the difference between the Mainstream News Media and the Blogosphere. It is, the difference between the investigator, and the analyst he claims correctly.
I think he has a point. Following the rule that stupidity explains more than malice one is confronted with the MSM's terribly bad analytical work. Most bloggers assume this is partisan reporting, and bias, which no doubt much is. But there is so much of it, that one is reminded of the rule of Stupidity Explains more than Malice in Human Affairs, and one has to assume that the MSM just doesn't know what its doing.
Luckily, the Blogs are here to analyze. And for more analysis, go here.
