Media F.Y.I. on Bloggers

We think its wonderful that established figures in politics and the media are starting their own blogs. We can’t wait until they get the hang of it.

Note that only those established personalities “slumming it” in the blurghosphere are conducting themselves like acid-tripping weasels with attention deficit disorder. The great mass of Pittsburgh webloggers, though often passionate, provocative and amusing, are conducting themselves with baseline civility and professionalism.

When the P-G’s Rich Lord calls the blogosphere “the scene of vitriolic commentary and rumor circulation,” we’re getting a bum rap because of those moonlighters, who think they’ve discovered some secret, morals-free, standards-free zone. Just be aware.
