OLD MEDIA ON THE RETREAT. Not to be missed is Hugh Hewitt's latest Weekly Standard column, "A Unified Theory of the Old Media Collapse." The blogosphere that Hewitt has so successfully been trumpeting is growing in influence and is serving as the much-need corrective to Old Media bias/laziness. This column comes out with less than a month to go before the release of Hewitt's new book, Blog. Instapundit has an online review of the book, which I greatly look forward to reading and reviewing.

Hewitt's recent suggestion that Old Media reporters make some disclosure as to their backgrounds and respective viewpoints is particularly interesting. Of course, the vehement reaction it has apparently spawned is none too surprising. Often times, Old Media folks are interested in critically examining everything but themselves and their own work.
