Bloggers attempt to bridge the gap

MTV: Israelis, Lebanese Blog To Each Other As War Rages [via Doc Searls]

Both sides of the political fence often claim that the mainstream media misses their side of the story. During conflict we often hear from the political leadership, be it those involved in the conflict or those outside of it. And conflicts are often presented in black-and-white/with-us-or-against-us arguments.

I think the article Doc points to shows how people, having found a voice through weblogs, can bypass the media to some degree and demonstrate that there is an alternative to war.
