Blogging into the Mainstream

Blogs may be going mainstream — CNN has officially added a daily 4 minute blog segment to its "Inside Politics" show, according to USA Today highlighted by Steve Rubel.  At some point blogs may no longer be the mavericks that they once were.  How will this affect their impact?  Bloggers today proud themselves on being outside the MSM (mainstream media) but the more that they get picked up, the more mainstream they become.  Will they resist the pressures that go with it?  Or will blogs shake out as a useful tool, but not the Wild West that many traditionalists perceive them to be today?
