One liberal crows over the results here, noting, for example, that:
Outside of academic journals, Democratic blogs almost certainly have the most highly educated audience of any news and opinion medium in the country. This is quite a contrast to the "naïve" stereotype about progressive bloggers. I would take a random sampling of progressive blog readers, with the points, against a random sampling of readers of any established news outlet in any intellectual challenge you can name. Progressive blog readers are very smart, and very highly educated.
Perhaps Im catching them on bad days, but when I read sites like DailyKos, the first thing that jumps out at me is not the erudition of the commenters.
