I've been following this for the last couple of days, and while it's no Rathergate, it's REALLY getting childish.
Take the time to link to some of the articles. Much better yet, the eye raising stuff is in the comments. You'll be shaking your head. I mean, some of these people are trying to "legitimize" blogging as journalism, but can't even act like respectful, professional adults.
This debate is doing nothing to promote the credibility or respect of the blogosphere. As Instapundit notes - the conference is becoming a self-parody.
That said - you can bet I'll be tuning in to the cat fight.
