AP debuts blog version of letters to the editor
Steamed at the mainstream media? Now you don't have to go through the formalities of submitting a letter to the editor and hoping your local newspaper runs it. Blog search engine Technorati just inked a deal with the Associated Press to provide lists of blogs that link to a particular AP story, as well as lists of the most-blogged-about AP wire stories.

The 440 newspapers that subscribe to the Web version of AP's wire service will have the option of displaying the links to related blog entries. Duncan Riley calls the deal a win-win for bloggers and the AP, noting that it will give bloggers more traffic. Maybe that mainstream media isn't so bad after all.
