Instapundit to Breitbart: Who’s Controlling Narrative?

Glenn Reynolds, a monthly columnist at the Washington Examiner (a.k.a Instapundit), enjoys being quoted. He was quoted in a recent NPR story on conservative writer, former Drudge Report Editor Andrew Breitbart, who runs his own site, Breitbart.com. But Reynolds wonders how the story got so twisted.

Read Reynolds’s post from this morning:

“So I was quoted in a story on NPR about …Breitbart, which was pretty good, really. But this story _which on my station ran right afterward – really underscores Breitbart’s point about the media trying to control the narrative. It’s all about a crumbling coastal building in California and the threat of coastal erosion from “climate change.” If you listen closely, the story doesnÂ’t quite say that the seas are rising and that’s why that building is in trouble, it certainly gives that impression. And it never admits that there are any questions about the whole climate-change debate. Narrative, indeed.”

Tony Snow On Blogs: “On a day-to-day basis, story-to-story, they don’t have much of an impact.”

Uh-oh…don’t let Glenn Reynolds hear this

    reason: How has the advent of new media such as bloggers complicated your job as press secretary?

    Snow: Not much. I’ve been a little bit surprised because I’ve always been an advocate of blogs but, at this juncture, they don’t affect things too much. The interesting thing about blogs is that they tend to be serial. They get into an issue and really dig into it, hit it hard. Then they play a very important role, but, on a day-to-day basis, story-to-story, they don’t have much of an impact.
