Instapundit links to Colby Cosh blogging about the continuing struggle journalists are having with Bush’s comment that he doesn’t read the newspaper. Colby Cosh wonders how many Fortune 500 CEOs read the newspaper and thinks the number isn’t over 200. Instapundit asks ‘I wonder how many read blogs?’
If you think about it, Bush has a human blog, so to speak. Blogs take the most interesting and important stories of the day and dissect them, provide a wide range of opinions on them, allow you read the stories for yourself and, usually, allow you to leave your own comments on said news. Bush has a team of people who provide him with news stories, then provide their opinion on these stories, he can read the stories himself and define his own opinion based on all these things. It helps that he has some of the most brilliant people in the world ‘blogging’ just for him.
