Dan Rather is Retiring. Is the Blogosphere the New Media Establishment?

Three of the finest minds in the Blogosphere will try to answer some of the questions raised by the headline above tomorrow, January 28, 2005, at an 11:00 a.m. panel hosted by the Heritage Foundation's Center for Media and Public Policy in the foundation's Van Andel auditorium.

The panelists will include Paul Mirengoff - AKA as Powerline's "Deacon" - as well as RatherBiased.com's Matthew Sheffield and Wizbang's Kevin Alyward. Sheffield was the motivating force behind the assembly of this panel and, since I will be moderating the event, I can tell you from my own inside information from the participants that the discussion is going to be fascinating. Somebody might even commit some news before it's over!

If you are in the Washington, D.C. area and would like to attend, the event is open to the public and there is no admission charge. A light lunch will be served to all attendees following the panel's completion. The Heritage Foundation is located at 214 Massachusetts Avenue, N.E., just two blocks east of Union Station, on Metro's Red Line.

And if you can't attend but would like to listen in on the proceedings, the panel will be webcast here.
