Kevin Drum, of Calpundit, is doing real journalism these days. Specifically, he’s digging through the paper trail associated with George W Bush’s service in the National guard. This is essential work, and it’s actually probably best handled by a devoted weblogger (or an ad hoc team of them). Newspapers are never going to publish scans of the relevant documents and explain what they mean, and they’re certainly not going to publish their ongoing research every day so that people can criticize it and add to it. Kevin’s work could very well find itself being ripped off and incorporated into big media news stories very soon.
