In The Beginning

I thought I should steal this name for a blog before someone else thought of it after reading the eloquent words of NYT Editor Bill Keller.

“At the moment,” he said, “the major press is under attack from ideologues on the right and left.” Keller also sees “blogging,” or online writing that blurs news and commentary, as a mixed blessing. While he celebrated the blogger’s ability to uncover breaking news, he noted that a blog’s inherent bias might be detrimental to the reader. “A blog is still a view of the world through a pinhole,” he said, noting that it can sometimes fall as low as being a “one man circle jerk.” “There is a pressure to feel well informed without ever confronting an opinion that confronts your prejudices,” he said of blog readers.
