Michele and the Command Post got a mention in the New York Times today. After speaking with Michele for half hour, the Times painted her to look like a bored housewife with nothing better to do. As she notes in an email, her "fifteen minutes of fame is more like ten seconds of bemusement."
I'm not sure if she actually expected the Times to write a serious article about weblogging or not. Considering the NY Times is frequent fodder for bloggers and right wing pundits, it comes as no surprise that they would try to sweep them under the rug. More so, weblogs are fast becoming competition for major media. While I doubt the Times is in any danger of being phased out by weblogs, there is always the room for embarrassment at being scooped or corrected by some random Joe and a computer.
