Comments: Meta-"London Bombings and Blog Evangelism"

I worry that if the act of capturing a story via "personal media tools" makes it more "real" (this much has been said somewhere), then relying on the ol' media for a story-- such as 80 people killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq-- perhaps makes it more unreal.

Perhaps the schadenbloggers are trying to rebel against Baudrillard's postmodern assertion that Gulf War I didn't really happen as we only knew about it through television. Don't know. It's late.
