The Second Coming Of The Amateur Blogosphere – The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan

The basic truth is that amateurs are often as good as professionals in journalism, which requires simply basic skills, integrity and practice. In the end, newspapers will be super-advertizing vehicles, searching for the best existing blogs out there and aggregating them. In a way, that’s already the Dish model. The sources come to you.

I love the Dish. It’s model is clearly different than the majority of news blogs out there– no comments, little original reporting, only subtle snark. But the aggregation and insight it provides are incredible.
