I think it's safer to assume there are no objective
sources, and that we are well-served by checking
out a variety of sources, especially those we don't

Good tease, Michael, and taken as such. I also thought it ironic that
your point was ratified by Fox.
I am skeptical of 'news' originating from blogs, partisan websites, and
so on. Yet in a sense, those very blogs form a rapidly self-correcting
system, like the genius behind wikipedia or the Rathergate that has
damaged CBS. Left or right, your comment about the symmetry of blind
spots "come in pairs" as you say, is a nicely turned phrase.
