Wa-Po Again

19 11 2010

So it would seem that the cavalcade of commentators at Wa-Po is a continuing enterprise.  Civil War Times editor Dana Shoaf has weighed-in on the Sesquicentennial today.  Perhaps my irritation at one expert’s repeated use of the word “must” spilled over into the tenor of my posts regarding this series (they keep using the word “blog”, but I do not think it means what they think it means).

Their “blog” seems to be a series of columns without any links. That’s the way most newspapers approach the “blog,” since they don’t like to lead a reader away from their site.

They also don’t like the editorial tone of real blog posts. A newspaper is very hierarchical. Only a select few are allowed to have views in the paper or its digital version.
