Turning On The Blogosphere


My (visual) analysis of the supposed Edwards blogging scandal (courtesy of CNN):

1. MSM reaction to right-wing blogospheric hysteria is, once again, completely out of scale.

2.  Isolate portions of any political blog, project it at this level of detail, and you’re guaranteed to offend any reactionary anybody on the opposite end of the ideological spectrum.  Maybe CNN would like to try parsing Michelle Malkin, or even, say Captain’s Quarters?

3.  With the political net taking serious root, those cable folks must be pleased for any chance to take the ‘sphere down a notch or two.
