HERE’S AN INTERESTING COMMENT to my TechCentralStation column today — interesting enough to reproduce here, as it seems to address a question that has perplexed many:

The main symbiosis that I see is that the bloggers serve as a negative feedback loop for the bias, incompetence and dishonesty of an agenda driven mainstream news media. The monopoly of punditry by the mainstream media has been broken by first talk radio and second by the Internet and bloggers in particular.

Successful talk radio and Internet bloggers are conservative/libertarian because they represent the error signal in a negative feedback loop, correcting left wing bias.

The feedback loop idea makes sense to me.
