Blog Power

The Rev. Rob Johansen is a young Catholic priest from Michigan on whose behalf a bunch of readers of orthodox Catholic blogs took up a collection to pay his fare to Florida, where he has joined in the vigil for Terri Schiavo. Turns out that aside from the family’s own priest, Fr. Johansen is the only Catholic clergyman on site helping out. As Mickey Kaus points out on his blog today, Fr. Johansen’s blogging from scene is a useful counterweight to NPR and other biased sources of reporting on the Schiavo case. Check out Fr. Johansen’s detailed comments on how certain media outlets are spinning the story. Fr. Johansen’s blog strikes me as a great example of how blogs can keep the public informed and the media honest.
