Francis Wilkinson: Today’s political coverage is is much better than 10 or 20 years ago

“For those seeking respect and career advancement, fear of public rebuke is a real disincentive for shoddy work. Thanks to the Web, such exposure is much more common today than in the past.

“Today, a stellar cast of bloggers is not only keeping the mainstream honest, its members are sometimes setting the pace.”
