I SAID EARLIER that local blogs would have a lot of impact. Bill Hobbs points to one that’s fact-checking newspaper bias in South Dakota at the Sioux Falls Argus Leader. Hobbs writes: “The reports, written by University of South Dakota law student Jason Van Beek, are blog-journalism at its finest.” Judging by the reaction from the journalists he’s covering, I think he’s having an impact already.

I think we’ll see a lot more local-blogging. In part that’s because local newspapers, almost always monopolists and often with too-comfortable relations with local politicos, are ripe targets.
