Great article written by the deputy editorial page editor of the Arizona Republic posted over at Powerline. Take the time to read it. Here’s a great bit:

The bloggers are demanding better standards and less bias – not unreasonable demands given journalism’s current track record. But they’re also creating stimulating and often irresistible discussion around the news we produce. Journalism tomorrow, thanks to forces like the blogosphere, will grow more competitive. The best journalists will flourish. The mediocre will be exposed and washed out.

As well as anyone’s said it.
