Role of Bloggers in Politics

Does anyone have a sense of how bloggers and blogging are changing the nature of American politics? In particular, how has blogging impacted the role of the media? I noticed several bloggers constantly "fact-checking" every sentence of both candidates in the debate, providing just as much, if not better scrutiny to the factual claims of Kerry and Bush. Is there a precedent for this?

Dorian, what are you doing associating with hacks such as Strolovich and Hacker? Don't you have a dissertation to be writing?
