Some Republicans from Minnesota bash bloggers as they criticize a Star Tribune editorial for partisan bitterness.
Sen. Norm Coleman and Reps. Jim Ramstad, Gil Gutknecht, Mark Kennedy and John Kline accused the paper’s editorialists of allowing “personal, partisan bitterness to trump the facts.”Aw gee, thanks. One day people will wake up and realize that top-quality bloggers have got traditional media beat for content and commentary hands-down.
“These sort of charges aren’t worthy of an Internet blog, let alone a respectable newspaper,” they declared. “Either present real facts and evidence, or leave the Bush-bashing nonsense to the bloggers.”
