Bloggers' faults should help mainstream news

If blogging is fraught with some many problems, shouldn't that help mainstream media news?

If it's true, as ReadWriteWeb reports, that factual and grammatical errors are hurting bloggers' credibility as news sources, this should be a boon for traditional news media, right?

As in open source, the more noise (think: thousands of packages in the Linux kernel), the more money will be paid to those that can cut through the noise (think: Red Hat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server). Could it be that the best thing that ever happened to mainstream news media is the cacophony of the blogosphere?

In other words, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and friends, you owe me big time for spehling pourly and not cheking fax.
