I just finished reading Lilek's latest and was preparing to add my two cents. James got his inspiration off of yet another columnist complaining about how he is a professional reporter and how bloggers are getting delusions of grandeur on taking the CBS memo debacle to ideas of replacing main stream media. I had read the article in queston, and found it to be full of the same elitism that has informed many other such articles. I was prepared to write a post about how the main stream media seems to be under the delusion that their readership is a mass of empty vessels waiting to be filled with knowledge.
Then, during the time I was reading the rest of Lilek's take on the whole blogger/main stream media boundary, the Star Tribune put the article behind a registration wall. So, F it all.
