If you've ever wondered why bloggers are needed to fill the void made by the conservative news media, a small story in Saturday's STrib will answer your question.
"The Army said it surpassed its... 12th consecutive month of meeting or recruiting its target." Only on the last sentence are we informed, "[The Army] missed its full-year target" Without spin, 12 months equals a year. What's the real story? If the mainstream media is so lazy that it only prints press releases, then bloggers are going to become the journalists of record. The YearlyKos convention going on now in Las Vegas is a sign of the times.
