Nobody likes us (they don't care)

Sunny Hundal has a post rounding up the possible reasons newspapers hate blogs so much - on Comment is Free, natch ;)

He's got four main suspects:
  1. Media needs novelty so likes to build trends up and knock them down when they get boring - this is just the normal backlash
  2. Corporate interests - MSM want to protect their patch against new competition
  3. Bloggers upset columnists by disagreeing with them publically, something they aren't used to
  4. Personal interests - now everyone can theoretically be a commentator, it's harder for those at the top to claim they're special enough to be paid well for it
