Loop de Loop

A good article on the new media here

And I am as guilty as anyone else of this:

Bill Wasik describes how “the network of political blogs, through a feedback loop among bloggers and readers,” has produced a machine that supplies the reader with “prefiltered information” supporting his or her own views. According to one study cited by Wasik, 85 percent of blog links were to other blogs of the same political inclination, “with almost no blog showing any particular respect for any blog on the other side.”

The link in this post is to the lefty-as-heck NY Review of Books.

But still.

I’ll work on it.
