Wanted: A new blogging coalition

"You see a scandal on the front page of the New York Times and you assume that steps will be taken...Villains will be brought to justice...Done. But time and time and time again that turns out not to be the case. Take Wednesday’s revelations about how Philip Cooney, an oil-industry lobbyist-turned-White House official, did extensive re-write work on gov’t reports to make it sound as if global warming weren’t really that big a problem -- indeed, that it might not be a problem at all. I guess Michael Crichton was too busy -- or too pricey," writes Arianna Huffington. "We can’t let that happen this time... which is why this is a perfect story for the blogosphere. If the mainstream media move on, let bloggers keep pounding away until we finally break through the din and people get mad enough, and scared enough -- and sweaty enough -- to demand that the Bushies be called on the carpet for doctoring science... We need to blog as if our lives depend on it... because they very well may." (Huffington Post)
