blogosphere sampling

There is an opinion from Bertrand Pecquerie that the blogosphere in the USA is mostly about targeting liberal journalists. He seems to think the claims about citizen journalism as a force for democracy are hard to sustain given the evidence of sustained projects to wreck the careers of solid journalists.

A quick check on Google blogsearch shows that such blogs do exist. Lex E. Libertas repeats a text from Jed Babbin who was a deputy undersecretary of defense in the George H.W. Bush administration. Is this typical of blogger opinion? Is it likely to be rported as such in some other media?

As print journalists would say, only time will tell.
