America: Swampland, the TIME Political Blog Illuminates the Uneasy Relationship between the Mainstream Media and the Blogosphere

Swampland is worth reading for its own sake, with the vivid, penetrating Joe Klein; the biting, racy Anan Marie Cox; and the calm, collected, and insightful Karen Tumulty, except when she's not allowed to be.

Honestly though, they have my respect; they answer to a large readership, and take a lot of lumps. There's no way they can avoid responsibility except by going dark, and they know it. But speaking of going dark, the other blogger and TIME Washington bureau chief Jay Carney, after two very badly handled mishaps, has been very quiet of late. Way to go, Katie.
