Come on. Give Badger Blogger a hug.

I know most of you think blogs are ridiculous. You have this strange love/hate relationship with those of us that ferret out the news you finally see on tv or read in that real paper every morning. Last night I saw another example of a blogger’s work hitting the mainstream – without any credit of course.

Patrick at Badger Blogger is doing this incredible series where he’s highlighting the spending of MPS. Last Saturday he popped up a piece showing that underfunded (read that sarcastically, please) district purchasing lots and lots of iPods. Yesterday, Charlie picked it up. (He at least gave a link!) Last night I saw it on WTMJ news. You bet, they made it look like they’d discovered it all by themselves.

Have you hugged your favorite blogger today?

    I’ve gotta say, that ticked me off. Heaven forbid the MSM give credit where credit is due…Patrick & the gang have broken more stories than any other blog that I know of.

  2. Thanks. I have come to not expect credit from the MSM, but I do appreciate the shout-out from the alternative media 😉
