Mainstream Leaders: Blogs Are Valuable News Sources
Posted By Washingtons Blog On February 2, 2013 @ 1:30 am In Weblogs | Comments Disabled
President Obama  said:
Blogs are best at debunking myths that can slip through a lot of the traditional media outlets.
Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke  noted (according to Matt O’Brien, business and economics editor at the Atlantic):
I read blogs. Blogs have become pretty important source of intellectual exchange.
David Steele  – former 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer – says that blogging is crucial for saving our country.
Many of the top economists and financial experts  have their own blogs.
So next time someone tells you that blogs aren’t credible, tell ‘em that mainstream leaders disagree …
Postscript: Because mainstream media and even social media tend to censor , many people are turning to blogs for unfiltered news and opinions from top experts.
