Either through stupidity or an attempt to maintain the 3 party neoliberal hegemony this PR as news report says-
Conservative blogs have established a clear lead over their left-wing rivals, according to a new report published today. The study, carried out by Social Media Affairs, found that 19 per cent of bloggers identified as Conservative Party supporters compared to 16 per cent each for Labour and the Liberal Democrats.The report Politics Online 2009 coincides with the launch of Social Media Affairs, the UK’s first major directory of political blogs.
So that’s 49% of blogs outside of the 3 party bullshit, that’s your headline mofos. And oh look, we all wear suits apparently. The Obama campaign’s use of the net has alerted shills everywhere to the importance of co-opting the web to give the same old shit legitimacy. The one thing the blogosphere should never be is business as usual.
