The O'Franken Factor just wrapped, and I thought it was fine. I know Wonkette and others are more or less 'meh,' but I think us bloggers/blogreaders are going to be generally underimpressed no matter what they do. But let's keep it in perspective: it's a totally different target audience -- with healthy overlap, of course. I doubt right-wing bloggers send much time listening to Rush, Hannity, Savage, et al. We all have good reason to be skeptical because of Mario Cuomo's and Phil Donahue's failures, for example, but it's hard to see this new network as anything other than a good thing for liberal voices.
