Mainstream Leaders: Blogs Are Valuable News Sources

The President of the United States, Head of the Federal Reserve and Others Say Blogs Are Good Sources of News

President Obama said:

Blogs are best at debunking myths that can slip through a lot of the traditional media outlets.

Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke noted (according to Matt O’Brien, business and economics editor at the Atlantic):

I read blogs. Blogs have become pretty important source of intellectual exchange.

David Steele – former 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer – says  that blogging is crucial for saving our country.

Many of the top economists and financial experts have their own blogs.

The same is true in every other field: politics, law, science, history, international relations, etc.

So next time someone tells you that blogs aren’t credible, tell ‘em that mainstream leaders disagree …


Postscript: Because mainstream media and even social media tend to censor, many people are turning to blogs for unfiltered news and opinions from top experts.
