    As in political bloggers? I couldn't say though, I don't pay any mind to bloggers.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    Do you find this to be true, or do you think the percentages aren't quite as high?
    Bias is profitable and results in more clicks per entry than centrism, which casts doubt on them being stupid.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Blogging is a forum where vomit goes unchallenged, by and large.
    Last time I challenged vomit it was flung back in my face at which point I promptly power hurled. My point made, I did an unintentional secondary hurl, lifted my head out of the toilet and washed up, content I wouldn't have to challenge vomit again for awhile.

    I disagree. Usually blog posts allow comments which gives a person the opportunity to counter the article.

    Also in the past couple of years, it has often been reputable bloggers who have done investigative journalism on major stories where the MSM have failed to cover due to political biases.
