The blogosphere has arrived
Proof that the liberal blogosphere is culturally current: The names of bloggers became a hipster in-joke reference on The Onion!
America's Finest News Source used the names Amanda Marcotte, John Amato, and Moulitsas Zuniga as captions for their running "what do you think?" feature. The Onion reuses the same pictures every week for this feature and the quotes are always fictional.
