Who the hell is Ellen Feiss? Sometimes that gap between us called the Atlantic is just too much for some news, thankfully.

Have you been following the terrible news from Soham in the UK? Dave expounds on a regular basis about how great webloggers are at highlighting issues, (and they are, look at 9/11 coverage, camworld and Dave’s site was where I went looking for info!) but it breaks down when there’s no webloggers around, so the traditional media will stay hold sway over what we think and how we perceive the world at large. There’s a lot more of them than us, and they have an interest in keeping a story alive, where we might get bored and immune to it and move on. Such is life.
