Blogging and the New Public Intellectual: Discussion with David Frum

[Blogging and the New Public Intellectual: Discussion with David Frum]
We live in the age of the blog. Public intellectuals and journalists must adapt to short news cycles, short attention spans, new economic models and a flood of competing commentary and information. The rise of blogs may be dangerous insofar as blogs attract like-minded people who only hear one side, but they are extremely powerful as well, insofar as they allow for people to become highly educated about the world by following a few top bloggers.

David Frum is a contributing editor at Newsweek and The Daily Beast and a CNN contributor. He is the author of eight books. Click here to visit Frum's Daily Beast Blog.
