Blogger Do’s and Don’ts

Blogger Article Do:  Henry Farrell in the Boston Review.

Blogger Article Don't:  Nick Confessore in the NYT (whom Atrios so adroitly dismantles here).

But then again, Henry is a blogger (he blogs at Crooked Timber and has also guest blogged at FDL) looking to do a bit more than pass off lazy, uninformed narratives at the behest of a really venal editor (who also reportedly did more than her fair share to push the anti-Ned Lamont coverage at the NYT, having done the same to Howard Dean).

If us residents of Greater Blogistan are so darn ineffectual, how come so much ink is being spilled trying to take us down? 

Just wondering.
