Why Blog for Terri Schiavo?

Topics: General

Late last year, Hugh Hewitt wrote in The Blog,

There was no shared plan of attack among the blogs. There was no coordination between them and their allies in talk radio and a few corners of MSM such as FOX News. There was, however, a network and there was an understanding of what mattered - facts - and a desire for speed and, crucially, a target. The destructive energy of the blogsphere is fierce indeed when focused.
While Hugh was writing about the take down of Dan Rather, it is clear that bloggers can make a big difference but it takes many, each independently researching, writing and motivating according to their own convictions.

"Bloggers caused enough ruckus to topple someone in Big Media, so let’s see what we can do to save a life." - La Shawn Barber

"Not to seem irreverant but just last night a bunch of bloggers were celebrating their power by causing the resignation of a man who said some terrible things, just think if the bloggers could come together and save a life." - TheBandWagon
