Default Re: Let me get this straight

Actually, yes, bloggers do link to people whose arguments directly contradict theirs. Here's how it works: I read article x, which states y. I disagree with y and tell you why on my blog, providing a link to y so that you can see for yourself. Perhaps you subsequently disagree with my refutation of y, and find y to be more convincing. Newspapers do not provide this ability. If a newspaper columnist makes a claim about someone else's claim, we have to take it for granted that they are giving an accurate description of the other person's claim. Not so with blogs.

Also, you claim that a newspaper presents things that you might not have thought to take interest in before. So do blogs. There are, in fact, many blogs that function like newspapers, giving summaries of various issues from various sources.
