Obama isn't relying on blogs to set policy
NYT via ThinkProgress:

UPDATE In an interview with the New York Times, Obama said blogs aren't a reliable source of information about the economic crisis:

Mr. Obama rode to the White House partly on his savvy use of new media, and he has a staff-written blog on his presidential Web site. Even so, he said he did not find blogs a reliable source of objective information, citing the economy as one example.

Part of the reason we dont spend a lot of time looking at blogs, he said, is because if you havent looked at it very carefully, then you may be under the impression that somehow theres a clean answer one way or another well, you just nationalize all the banks, or you just leave them alone and theyll be fine.

2. It takes like a nano second to conclude that Bloggers, for the most part,
don't know what the fuck they are talking about.
Hell, I came to the same conclusion real quick! :rofl:
