Andrew Sullivan writes: “I was also struck by how much of the debate is being fostered by websites and blogs. They’re the National Reviews of the new millennium. The future really is here, isn’t it?” One can’t help but notice–well, I certainly can’t–that National Review understood that possibility even before the blogosphere was cool–which is why we have NRO today.
That said, I don’t think NRODT is going away. Even some of the most web-savvy young folks I know, with their blackberrys, etc., still want to curl up with a paper magazine. I don’t have time to deal with the paper broadsheets, but many, many people make the time. Dead tree ain’t dead yet. But for those who rather their opinion journalism come on a screen, here we are and here we’re staying.
