How Daschle Got Blogged How Daschle Got Blogged

How Daschle Got Blogged in OpinionJournal - John Fund on the Trail. Interesting article on the effects of blogging. In this case, the only real state wide paper was significantly biased in favor of Democrats and in the previous Senatorial election, may have swung the election in their favor by its biased coverage - esp. of the corruption of voter fraud.

The elections in two years are going to be very very interesting. The big question to me is how the Democrats (primarily) and the Republicans (to a lesser degree IMHO) will anti-blog.

The problem I see is that what blogging does is open up new avenues for dissemination of facts. I don’t see dissemination of falsehoods as fact to be that overly effective. But something will be done to counter blogging. It was just too effective this time - both at the national level with the Swift Boat Vets and Rathergate, and at the local level, with, for example, SD. The only thing I can see right now is agressive trolling. But that just ruins blogs that allow comments, whereas many others do not, and probably cannot be silenced that way.
