Blog Report Report: Heavy Meta

We don't know about anyone else but we are huge fans of "The Blog Report" on "Inside Politics." See, it's about blogs. They have two young women, sitting in front of computers, reading blogs out loud. Sometimes they do a quick cut or shaky cam thing because that's what "the kids" are into. What with the MTV and whatnot.


So, welcome to Wonkette's new feature, "The Blog Report Report," where we describe CNN describing bloggers describing the news.

(4:14:52) wonkette: hey, it's time for the BLOG REPORT on CNN!

(4:14:57) wonkette: i love this segment

(4:15:17) "joe klein": i want that job

(4:15:27) "joe klein": since it would mean that all the time i spend wasting by reading blogs would be... not wasted!
