Maureen Dowd goes to YearlyKos and misses the forest for the trees: "Even as Old Media is cowed by New Media, New Media is trying to become, rather than upend, Old Media. [Ana Marie] Cox has left her Wonkette gig to be a novelist and Time essayist. Mr. Moulitsas and Mr. Armstrong wrote a book called 'Crashing the Gate,' and hit 'Meet the Press' and the book tour circuit. Mr. Armstrong left his liberal blog to become a senior adviser to Mr. Warner. What could be more mainstream than that?"
Yeah, that's the real point of having thousands of activist bloggers. Not.
In Time, Ana Marie Cox quotes a Wes Clark aide: "Ten days ago, he had a street named after him in Kosovo, today he’s on a science panel with a man named 'Darksyde' and a woman in a bonnet. That is democracy."
