Another interesting threat/opportunity for the mainstream media is the rise of community news aggregators like http://www.newsbump.net

They don't check it because they want to believe what it said and are afraid they'd find out it was a lie. I admire you for listening to Savage because 2 minutes of him anymore, and I can't stand it. Same with Limbaugh. I used to listen to that stuff to keep informed on what they were saying but at a certain point it wasn't worth it, and I came to believe they don't care if they pass on lies.

E-mails are the same way and I get some from a right wing friend, which I always double check and usually are not true. One involved Jesse Jackson's picture but the story didn't have anything about him. When I informed my 'friend' that the story was false, he said anything that damages Jackson he would pass on.

What gets me about it is these are the people with the supposed moral high ground?!!
