Poor quality, not bias

After 9/11, USS Clueless experienced a dramatic rise in traffic and became my source of choice for analysis on the war in Afghanistan. Here was a guy who knew how militaries worked, and his accounts of strategies, tactics, logistics, manouvers, equipment etc. were detailed and informed in a way that I simply had not seen anywhere else. In general, I saw new blogs shift from discussing technology, to politics. The war blogger was born.

The Belmont Club has become my source of choice for the war in Iraq. In particular, his understanding of information quality, and how that impacts decisions, puts other coverage of events to shame. Check out this post where he nails why newspapers are lousy conduits of true information.
