Subverting the dominant real estate paradigm

From Slate’s article, "Bloggers Freer Than Reporters? And vice versa."

What can bloggers do that professional journalists can’t? Because
bloggers answer to no one, they need not worry if their dispatches
cause the chairman of the board of General Motors to stop talking to
the publisher—or placing ads. Their independence gives them a
subversive strength, one that undermines the cozy relationship the
press has with its corporate cousins and government. The unmediated
nature of blogs, which frightens so many professional journalists, is
really a plus. With so many bloggers writing outside the bounds of
authority, they’ve become impossible to silence or censor, and their
provocations help keep the national debate going at full tilt. Too bad
constructive recklessness can’t be taught.
