Mark Glaser of OJR has a new story up On Air and Online, Olbermann Draws Attention to Voting Problems which contains a few of my observations on Olbermann including *gasp* crediting KO with being one of the few TV personalities who really "gets" blogging. Read the whole thing but this is the part my mom wants to read:
"If you accept the notion that a blog is the unedited voice of a person and that blogging is about a dialogue with other bloggers and blog readers, then it seems clear that Keith Olbermann is among the top tier of TV personality 'media bloggers' along with Kevin Sites of NBC and Tony Snow at Fox News," Cox told me via e-mail. "Unlike some of the bastardized, 'corporatized,' so-called blogs at major media outlets, Olbermann is much closer to producing a genuine blog. He reads blogs (including my own which he labeled 'belligerently uninformed'), links to blogs and regularly responds to other bloggers."
While Cox thinks Olbermann has been smart to cover voting problems on his blog, he thinks Olbermann has gone too far by going on TV without enough vetting of online material. Cox has been running the most biting criticism of Olbermann on his blog. "He routinely lifts information from Internet sources such as 'chain letter' e-mails, satirical Web sites and blogs and puts it on the air," Cox said.
