MATTHEW ENGEL has an interesting take on why blogs might have become so popular in the US - American newspapers are so dull

I can't really comment - the only American newspaper I read with any regularity is the International Herald Tribune although I have to say that paper certainly fits Engel's description in terms of lay-out, design and panache - it is utterly dull and reminiscent of a 1950's English local newspaper.

But have American reporters really become as craven in front of the Bush administration as Engel suggests?
