WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
By Chuck Raasch, Gannett National Writer
news karaoke artists
• Commentators are the news karaoke artists on blogs and social
networks. They are not original witnesses, but they are heavily
engaged spinners of the providers' work. Once upon a time, they were
primarily editorial page writers, campaign consultants and pundits.
Today, they range from opinion bloggers to Larry the Cable Guy. Their
cacophony is making the biggest mark of the information age.
