Comments: On "Blogging The Convention", or Cargo-Cult Journalism

Hmm.. you're missing the point.

Every person who reposts a newspaper link adds his/her flair of personality to it. Even if it's a "WTF"? Then they also provide a comment form, where a sort of community of regular readers is engaged in discussion. That is the value. The filter of personality.

You'll never buy into the famous among dozens idea, will you :)?

Firas: In the above, I'm talking about the concept of getting formal press credentials, to go and be unpaid, volunteer, journalists during the political conventions.

Regarding sounding-off, I understand the appeal of it :-). But as I say, opinions are like noses (to be euphemistic), everyone has one, and thinks theirs smells best.
