COMMENT: Bloggers and Journos ...

Arianna Huffington, former Republican and ex-wife of a Republican, addressed the Commonwealth Club of California before the US Presidential Election. She reminded her audience of the difference between the mainstream media and the blogosphere.

Huffington declared that the mainstream media was Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) while bloggers have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The “MSM” allows the real story to get through while bloggers keep focussing on the same stories over and over again, even when they are on the mark.

So what illness should we attribute to columnists and journalists in the mainstream media who also have blogs?

You can watch Huffington's hilarious address below.
