Thank the guys in PJ

It’s an amuzing coincidence that bloggers nowadays are referred to as “the guy in pajamas” and the first op-ed blog in Sweden is led by PJ Anders Linder.

Footnote: Jonathan Klein, former senior executive of CBS 60 Minutes, on Fox News said in the Dan Rather controversy: “Bloggers have no checks and balances. [It’s] a guy sitting in his living room in his pajamas.” Andrew Sullivan responded in Time magazine “Does this mean the old media is dead? Not at all. Blogs depend on the journalistic resources of big media to do the bulk of reporting and analysis. What blogs do is provide the best scrutiny of big media imaginable—ratcheting up the standards of the professionals, adding new voices, new perspectives and new facts every minute. The genius lies not so much in the bloggers themselves but in the transparent system they have created. In an era of polarized debate, the truth has never been more available. Thank the guys in the pajamas. And read them.”
