Voice of the Underclass!
It turns out, however, that the bloggers the Observer has in mind (whose blogs I have absolutely no intention of linking to from here) merely add to the general and sickening fascination with celebrity - they just do it in a ruder way than the celebrities like. Well, my heart bleeds. If blogging really has a social purpose and value, it's because of the times and places where it really does give a voice to the voiceless. Which doesn't include the lackeys of the New York media elite.
