Last month, a small community of webloggers decided they were fed up with the coverage that their favorite Democratic candidate was getting in the mainstream press. They decided to take matters into their own hands, and one by one began to "adopt" reporters whose work they would critique on their own websites.

Perhaps, suggests Brooke, it's a combination of both.
