"Why aren't bloggers more interested in helping papers make a go of it online?"

That question's for Paul Farhi (left), who wrote "Build that Pay Wall High." He types in a chat: "I can't imagine a world (or an internet) without the raw factual material that newspapers provide every day, but I guess the bloggers don't really care about any of that. They're mostly about themselves and their opinions, with little thought given to where they're getting their basic facts." || Reaction to the AJR piece: "Lots of supportive comments from people here [at the Post]. But lots more pushback from bloggers and such."
