All this talk of Blogosphere vs Main Stream Media occasions a question.

Where do you get your stories and exposes etc from?

Blogs, message forums, the MSM (and an analysis thereof).

At the same time, reporters in the MSM do the same things and go to the same sources (and I should know; I'm a former reporter).

The larger question is one of "legitimacy." The "Old media" (as a whole) does not consider blogs and bloggers to be legitimate sources of news and information (even though many reporters pay just as much attention to the "New media" as we do). We, on the other hand, certainly acknowledge the MSM, but not to the exclusion of other sources and resources.
