On the subject of blogging on this morning's edition of The Chris Matthews Show, panelist David Gregory says that he is a big fan of AndrewSullivan.com and called it "one of the best places on the web". Andrew Sullivan is a blogger who claims to be conservative, however shares many liberal viewpoints. He voted for George W. Bush in 2000, but voted for John Kerry in 2004.
DAVID GREGORY: It's the ability to take an issue and how to proliferate on the web and therefore get more traction than it would through other means. AndrewSullivan.com is one of the best places on the web and I'm sucking up to him because I love it and I am a big consumer of it.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Who's this guy again?
GREGORY: Because he is intellectually spontaneous, but he may devote attention to an issue that's not getting a lot of play otherwise, that's the power here.
You may say it is ironic that Gregory praises Sullivan for devoting "attention to an issue that is not getting a lot of play", because he himself is known for devoting a lot of attention to one issue and ignoring news that should be getting attention. A perfect example would be his obsession of the Cheney hunting incident.
