Jill Carroll and the blogosphere

It's not pretty. The blogs end up looking like the hopeless drunks, the uninformed louts, the despicable bigots at the end of the bar. Smart thoughts from a right-wing pundit:

In people’s haste to be first, or different, or just plain ornery and contrary (all the better to get links and readers) a culture of “shoot first and ask questions later” has arisen in the blogosphere that quite frankly, is proving every bad thing that the MSM has been saying about blogs from the beginning. Many of us – including myself – have been guilty in the past of hitting that “Publish” button when perhaps it would have been prudent and proper to take a beat or two to think about what we just wrote and the impact it might have beyond the small little world we inhabit in this corner of Blogland.

That's about right. But it has happened before, and it will happen again.

My earlier thoughts here.
