The age of new-new journalism

In our post-newspaper world, are these questions about James Carville's bias even relevant anymore? Every reporter has a blog and many political reporters act as pundits, spouting opinions with little care about the consequences to coverage. Bright lines are blurred in response to audience demand for more meaningful, more bloggy reporting, etc.

Even the New York Times live-blogged the debate and essentially scored the answers.

Aside: blogs will never be taken seriously until we find a new word to describe them.
