Not sorry enough

Last night, BC hosted a few clients at this debate between "bloggers" and "commentators" - a fairly false-dichotomy as the panel acknowledged. Among the newspapers taking part in the discussion about the growth of the bloggosphere was The Evening Standard.

What we would have said - had we had one more glass of wine - is that many blogs (this one, certainly) simply spring up as a result of market failure - filling the void of coverage provided by other sources.

And there can be no more graphic illustration of the market failure in London media coverage than the Evening Standard's support for Richard Branson's proposal to take the marathon away from boring old south east London. 853blog has the full story.
