Punting partially-verified information goes on in all areas all over the blogosphere, not just in the political field. The world is still intrigued by blogs and the opinions within them. I just think that in future years there will be a reaction against them, or at least, a collective worry about the veracity of what is written on them. People will want fact-checked, verifiable information from the sites they read. And you know what? They'll get that from good old quality journalism. Well researched news stories will be a premium.
