Howard Kurtz at the Washington Post does a schtick on dubya administration spokesperson Dana Perino.

…From her [Dana Perino] vantage point, the rise of the blogging culture has damaged journalism. With mainstream reporters posting blog items throughout the day, “it’s snappy, sarcastic. It doesn’t necessarily engender trust between the reporter and the press people.” And she sees the growth in “analysis” pieces as an excuse for some reporters to vent “what their feelings are about an issue…”

Blogging culture. Yeah, the great unwashed asks all those impertinent questions and demands answers. Unlike real journalists.
