"People-Powered Media Eat the Lieberman Campaign"

Pachacutec wrote this article over at FireDogLake about blogging and its effect on the Connecticut Senate race:

Here’s the one line description of the 1958 horror classic "The Blob": "An alien lifeform consumes everything in its path as it grows and grows."

I think Joe Lieberman knows the feeling. His enemy, however, is not "The Blob", it’s the blogs: the new, people-powered media, scaring the bejeebus out of a whole Titanic pleasure cruiser of establishment players.
And then there's more:
Day-by-day, people-powered media, colloquially known as blogs, are eating up the Lieberman campaign, even as they threaten the inherently conservative mainstream media and the national political establishment. Like "The Blob", they seem to insiders an alien force consuming everything in its path as it grows and grows. But the people aren’t aliens: they’re simply citizens telling the truth and propelling their heartfelt values.

Establishment players are right about one thing, though: people-powered media continue to grow and grow. In fact, the progressive movement is just getting started, no matter who wins the Connecticut Senate Democratic primary. Welcome, my friends, to the new media universe.
You can read the entire article right here.

And Chris Bowers over at wrote a similar article at the same time; I guess all the amazing press that appeared this weekend has gotten a lot of national attention.

Much like "The Blob", the Blogs are growing and growing and growing...

I think the Paul Bass Hartford Courant article is a good one:
Seasonal Memory Lapses
Once you get past the "nice" part, says the partisan.
Like Joe's shell game voting record, corrupt politics and McCarthyite tendencies. Not nice Joe.
