Wow, there's a big, and I mean HUGE storm brewing at the moment in the blogosphere. Blogs like Powerline and Little Green Footballs are reporting on the Bush National Guard documents shown on 60 Minutes yesterday and today in the Boston Globe might possibly be forgeries. As I write this, Powerline is not accessible out of Europe anymore, it must be receiving a lot of traffic. Same went for Little Green Footballs just now, but just keep trying, it is very good reading.

What is happening here though, beyond the 'usual' debunking of left-wing spin, is that journalism, as I type, is being redefined.

Jonah Goldberg of National Review says in The Corner:

But All Hail The Blogosphere if it slays the "60 Minutes" giant on this one.
He couldn't be more right, and the implications for the big media institutions as a primary source of information might take a huge hit out of this one.
