Rachel Maddow Stands Up For Bloggers

(Via Towleroad.)

If only it were the case that wearing a suit and being on television meant that a person was necessarily intelligent and insightful. Sure, some of the blog entries I read and share each day contain crude humor or other controversial content that wouldn't be acceptable in the mainstream media. However, many of the blogs I follow engage in the kind of extensive expert analysis that simply can't be crammed into the broadcast media's sound byte-centric format. Thus, dismissing all bloggers because some of them aren't serious doesn't make any more sense than saying Charlie Rose must be as terrible of an interviewer as Sean Hannity just because they both appear on television.
