And finally... Two weekends ago NHIC did a segment on bloggers in the NHL. Overall it was a pretty good piece. Several familiar names were mentioned and also happened to give their reviews of the segment, including Tom Benjamin and James Mirtle (who wrote a second follow-up last night). For the most part my thoughts of the piece parallel what these two said, especially on accountability to the readers. If I was full of crap, my readership wouldn't keep growing, would it? It seems to me when the MSM screws up, they just circle the wagons. When a blogger screws up, their readership drops and other bloggers get into a feeding frenzy. For me, I'm in a niche and function similar to Kukla's Korner (or Matt Drudge), in that I'm a clearinghouse for articles. I also toss in my opinions on things where I can, and once in awhile get my own scoops. By the way, I'm not losing my touch - I had the news on Dane Litke's resignation probably within an hour of it taking place, but a busy workplace kept me from posting it, so I left it for Lou Babiarz' write up this morning.
