8 thoughts on “WaPo Discovers The Net Neutrality Issue”

  1. Om –
    You are definitely not obscure. He must have been referring to my obscure blog and its 3 postings on the topic.

    The only thing this proves is that the mass media might soon be referred to with another O-word…obsolete

  2. The blogs are obscure to 99.9% of the population. Could possibly add another 9 to that. Walk into your average bar (working-man or other) and ask, you’ll find out just how obscure they are. šŸ™‚

  3. This is typical scared columnist talk. Not only are blogs typically weeks faster than traditional media outlets, the authors are many times more informed.

    MSM journalists have seen the writing on the wall so they never pass up a chance to disparage them.

  4. Look I am glad he did the piece, and that will bring the spot light to the issue, and working man might pay attention. that not many people read blogs, (hard to believe) but still, dismissing the “two lightening rods as obscure” is just wrong. i got really p-ofed by that. sorry, and no this was not about me. i know how much work jeff has put into this, and so has doc.

  5. Just noticed this might be a bit confusing:

    “MSM journalists have seen the writing on the wall so they never pass up a chance to disparage them.”

    MSM journalist = the Wash Po guy
    Them = blogs

  6. om,
    it’s interesting that bloggers were onto the net neutrality debate long before the mainstream media got their act together. when i wrote my feature for the national post in december, i felt like i had almost missed the boat given there had already been so much discussion in the blogosphere.

  7. While the “working man” might not know what a blog is, he doesn’t read the Washington Post either . . .
