Here's the link if you can't read it:

I gotta say, as a journalist, Blogs are still the equivalent of 'Letters to the Editor.' There are some exceptions. You are always going to have a blogger get an inside scoop or call out a journalist on an incorrectly-reported element of a story. But for a sustained stream of factual content, I will most always put my trust in journalists. Just by design, they have an army of editors and a bevy of libraries at their service - not to mention back issues of newspapers. Newspapers also have the constant threat of getting sued, so, despite of what you hear on Rush Limbaugh, newspapers are sensitive as hell to reporting bias. There's no way that a journalist can be an expert in all things - and that's where bloggers come into the fold - these bloggers are free to expose gaps in a story.

Current listening selections:

Lucinda Williams - Live at the Fillmore

The Verve - Urban Hymns

Prince - Sign O' The Times
