Preparing to Bork. Entangling alliances. The internet killed the print star. Plus more.

What is happening to print media? Why are newspapers and magazines failing? Apologists for print media insist the reason is that bloggers have stolen their readership. And these same bloggers do not have credentials the print media does, so they can’t be trusted. And radio shows are poisoning the well.
The other argument is that with a $500 computer, one can read articles from perhaps 50 print sources. Such a deal! What happened?
Matt Drudge is what happened. Matt Drudge discovered the new media world. And traditional media paid too much attention to an “old media world.” Drudge and his followers offer a better media deal for consumers and customers are flocking to him and his clones in droves.
Old media will have to reformulate itself, make new brands, and
compete for customers. Anyone care to buy a buggy whip?

AN IVORY TOWERING CONDEMNATION
Re: Patrick O’Hannigan’s Defending Mary Ann Glendon:
As a Catholic I do not think anyone needs to defend any of us who are Catholic. We merely follow the faith of all the martyrs down all the centuries. We know we have the true faith. Because of our monks and their lifetime of hand writing all Christians have the Bible.
This woman needs no defense. If she had gone she would have committed a mortal sin and it seems she is smart enough to know she must first think of her own soul.
Those at Notre Dame who allow this, especially clergy, upon their
death will first speak with Our Lady. Then they will go to
Her Son. I hope the trip to hell for them is a fast ride

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
