CBS News recently made public the report of its internal
investigation on how "60 Minutes Wednesday" came to broadcast a
September 8, 2004, story about President Bush's National Guard
service that was based on forged documents from an anonymous
source. This report was made necessary because within minutes of
the original CBS broadcast, bloggers were examining the documents
and pointing out clear evidence that they were forged. Chief among
those bloggers were PowerlineBlog.com, RatherBiased.com, and WizBangBlog.com.
Some media observers now contend the Blogosphere is rapidly
replacing CBS and the rest of the mainstream media. Even New
York Times best-selling author Hugh Hewitt calls his latest
book, "Blog: Understanding the Information Reformation That is
Changing Your World."
Come hear what three of these pioneers of the new reformation have
to say about that and many related issues about the news media.
