NYT Pens a Love Note to Liberal Bloggers

Good grief.
Clarice Feldman of American Thinker gets a brief mention, but Plame-case all-star Tom Maguire is unjustly snubbed (and I guess the NYT doesn’t consider the Corner’s Byron York a blogger).
Media Bloggers Association president Robert Cox gets in a good line:

Even as they exploit the newest technologies, the Libby trial bloggers are a throwback to a journalistic style of decades ago, when many reporters made no pretense of political neutrality. Compared with the sober, neutral drudges of the establishment press, the bloggers are class clowns and crusaders, satirists and scolds.
“They’re putting in a lot more opinion and a lot more color than the traditional reporters,” said Mr. Cox, adding that the bloggers were challenging “the theory of objective journalism.”

As this article itself shows, it’s a pretense that needs to be challenged.
