Comments: CBS and Dan Rather admit forged memos, blogs, and The Pajama Game

"the problem is not that CBS didn't have the relevant information, but rather they just didn't want to hear it"

(Was that pun intentional? :-)

There seems to be a lot of this disease going around. Think of uranium from Africa, trailers in the desert, unemployment reports, etc. Most news organizations don't do enough sanity checking on "news" items to separate the truth from the spin, nor do they report in enough depth and with enough analysis to allow people to understand the issues.

One thing that some of those pajama-clad bloggers do is provide a deeper analysis of events. That's why I read this one.
