In his new book An Army of Davids, Glenn Reynolds offers some thought-provoking commentary on the power of blogs. In a book review in the Wall Street Journal, Adrian Wooldridge comments on how blogs might influence the media,

"Mainstream editors get faster off the mark (one hopes) because they realize that any dithering will be exposed by the blogosphere; and mainstream journalists get more self-critical because they realize that ignorance and bias will be immediately exposed.

The David army envisioned by Mr. Reynolds may well, in the long run, end up beating the Goliaths of big media and big government into submission. In the meantime, let's hope for a more modest goal: that it can make them a little better at doing their jobs."
