Washington Post Radio Biased Anti Blog?

Over the weekend, I was driving around town in the gorgeous weather, listening to Washington Post Radio, hoping to get a glimpse at the Nationals game. Instead, I heard former Post columnist Bob Levey and one of the Post’s media “specialists” talking about the video that was released this past week of the plane crashing into the Pentagon on 9/11.

That didn’t faze me, but what came next was absolutely galling. In not a few short leaps, Levey moved from talking about people who don’t believe an airplane crashed into the Pentagon, to talking about webloggers are encouraging these sorts of theories online. What’s more insulting, that Levey talked about bloggers as simply conspiracy theorists, or the fact that he’s lumping all bloggers together?

I guess what I have to ask next is: Is the Post biased against bloggers? Is this some sort of mainstream media pushback against a group of writers who are stealing their Style, Sports and Business sections from them and giving them away for free to a younger demographic who no longer needs a paper copy?

Why is there such resentment for bloggers at Washington Post Radio?
