After all, it's vital...as it is in all elements of the world we've created...to remember the other, often-ignored portion of this equation: The Public.

Never claimed otherwise. I was just rejecting the old 'bloggers are to blame' meme, and couldn't help drawing a parallel between the impetus to blame the decline of journalism on bloggers, and the rush to blame the devaluing of the institution of marriage on those johnny-come-lately gays and lesbians.

BTW, I also reject the idea that there has been a decline in 'journalism'. There is still lots of great writing and reporting going on out there, but journalism and journalists have been conflated with the very real decline in the overall quality of the output of the MSM.
