The Revolution Was Blogged

Slate Editor-in-chief, Jack Shafer, on the "Blogging, Journalism, and Credibility" conference at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government:

I hadn't witnessed such public expressions of high self-esteem since the last time I attended a journalism awards ceremony.
Captain Ed writes eloquently as to how Shafer missed the revolution.

While there may be 7 million bloggers, there are some that are already beating other more established media outlets on the web. For example, who gets more web traffic according to Alexa?

Daily Kos or Rush Limbaugh?
Instapundit or The Weekly Standard?
Power Line or Sean Hannity?
Talking Points Memo or The New Yorker?
Wizbang or The American Prospect?

If you picked the blog in each case, you were right. The rankings come from John Hawkins analysis of the traffic rankings for the top 125 political sites. The rankings may surprise you, and I'm pretty certain they'd surprise Jack Shafer.

I can't keep up with all of the Blog vs. whatever as "Blogging, Journalism, and Credibility" are actually 3 different things.
