What is unique in the war on blogging, says Blog Herald, is that the battles are not one based on politics, but on hatred of the blogosphere by the old media as it continues to lose readership and the revenues a large readership attracts. The war’s targets are both those on the left and right of the blogosphere.
The common thread amongst most critics is a denigration of blogs as an illegitimate source of news, based, it seems, nearly entirely on the premise that bloggers do not have editors, and therefore are incapable of providing factual information.
Like little boys who are unable to cross the road without holding their mothers hand, old media continue to justify their use of editors in a Freudian attempt at justifying their love for their employers.

Rage on, old guard, but blogging is here to stay. The medium is indeed the message.
