Citizen Journalists

Political blogs have infuriated the media establishment because they are quicker with the news and they have singlehandedly exposed fraud (Rathergate anyone?).

Now it is The Daily Kos, a lefty Democrat blog, who is accusing the Clinton campaign of making Obama look blacker and with a wider nose possibly with the idea of making him look Muslim.

Of course, the Clinton campaign denies this, and goes as far as saying the ad on Kos is not the ad on their campaign. But guess what? It is.

Whether you agree or not with the view of some of the advocate blogs, you gotta give them credit for uncovering what others wont' do.

That is disturbing. Hopefully as more people get involved in social media and other internet activity, more things like these will be uncovered. As the saying goes, "believe half of what you see and none of what you hear." As technology continues to grow at such a rapid pace, it's hard to believe anything that we see. It is sickening but not surprising that politicians would stoop so low.
