In a review of a book titled The Cult of the Amateur which seems to be about attacking the blogosphere and similar we find this droll and remarkably blind statement:
Mr. Keen says, “history has proven that the crowd is not often very wise,” embracing unwise ideas like “slavery, infanticide, George W. Bush’s war in Iraq, Britney Spears.” (italics added)
"Blind" in the sense that media had a very strong supporting role in creating that very "unwise idea." It did not come from the blogosphere (even the right blogosphere) spontaneously.
