Dan Sabbagh makes an interesting suggestion in a piece in The Times about political bloggers:

The big political bloggers are now receiving regular tip-offs � often from journalists unable to get the story in question into their own newspaper or bulletin.

It’s notable that pretty much all of our national newspapers have a political agenda of their own. Is this the first sign of journalists starting to rebel against this? Even if it isn’t, it’s a whole new twist on the bloggers versus journalists debate.
