From the Plastic.com article Get a fucking blog:

«”In a society where the Fourth Estate is the self appointed guardian of truth, do Blogs offer the potential to expose the seedy underbelly of the morality police? Are they simply potentially worrisome due to the possibility that they may detract from the abilities of the corporate owners of newspapers and media outlets to keep their information subsidiaries ‘on message’? Do they ultimately represent a potentail alternative and challenge to media concentration? All of this ultimately leads us to the question: when will the greatest news site of them all begin referring to blogs as primary sources?”»
