Target: L.A. Times

I am not really into "liberal media bias" complaints. I note, however, that Patterico has published part one of his year-end list of complaints about coverage by the L.A. Times. I suspect that there is a reasonably popular blogger (or two, or ten) who is now monitoring the coverage of every major paper in the United States and, unlike the olden days where the only option was a letter to the editor, those bloggers now have an outlet to express directly their unfiltered reactions to a large audience.

My point is this: I would hate to be in the newspaper business right now. Ambitious bloggers don't develop a large following by delivering a consistent "congratulations on a job well done" type of message.
