Stefan: Agreed, they have let us down too much and many of their stories are highly biased. Having said that, on average they do a much better job of researching and writing stories than bloggers do. This is not to say bloggers are bad, just the opposite I think they too are important in the process. I just think it would be useful if bloggers who report news and information took a more journalistic approach to their reporting.

Unfortunately, the professional media has let us all down too often, and to single it out as the source of unbiased information is IMO, at best dangerous.

This should really be quite obvious by comparing different news channels reporting the same story - Fox vs. CNN vs. BBC - for example. Not all of them can be right, they do not only give you the facts they give you innuendo, big time.
