  •  DKos and "breaking news" (6+ / 0-)

    Daily Kos actually has a proud and successful tradition as a breaking news site for major events. At the site's best, it's a lot more organized than this, with a series of coordinated motherships handling links to diaries as they become available.

    But this isn't really the sort of situation anyone expects to see on a Friday.

    In comparison, check out DKos's coverage of just about every major disaster in the past several years. Kossack contributors of breaking news have been really, really helpful at organizing critical links and information, and as I recall, were influential in saving at least one life during ... I forget, some natural disaster or other.

    This isn't our best work. But we're still trying. It's not electing more and better Democrats, but it's still what we're here for.

    "All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others." -Douglas Adams
