I hate the term “MSM” (Mainstream Media) that we bloggers use to describe older media and news organizations, but sometimes you need to acquiesce.
Lots of folks thought that members of traditional media couldn’t ‘do blogging’ for various reasons. They were wrong. Take a look around and you will find some of the best blogs are being produced in places once thought unlikely.
Wired Magazine’s Wired Blogs have some of the most interesting technology/geek focused blogs you could subscribe to.
For politics there are those hosted at The Atlantic.
