Will Pajamas Media Wake Up Blogs?

Wired News asks: Will Pajamas Media Wake Up Blogs? 

PJs isn't about elitism, or big business is it? Of course not. Heh, say it ain't so Roger. Say it ain't so. SLAP!
The site aims to be "a whole online news service of bloggers from all over the world," said (Roger) Simon. With a list of contributors that reads like a who's who of the political blogosphere, Pajamas Media thinks its daily blog picks will be of a higher quality than automated services like Memeorandum or keyword aggregators like Technorati.

"Technorati is a search engine; it's all technology. We are going to highlight blogs that we think are good for quality reasons," said Simon.

The site, which is limited to political bloggers now, is slated to become a blog portal for all kinds of subjects, including a lifestyle section. That would put it in competition with established blog networks like Gawker Media.

Louder criticism surrounds which editors Pajamas Media is choosing, as some think the venture will be partial to blogs that reflect Pajamas' political viewpoint. Richard Silverstein has analyzed some of the bigger names in Pajamas Media to show their conservative tilt in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying that their viewpoints are farther to the right than Ariel Sharon's.
