Gavin Newsom, the shiny-haired mayor of San Francisco who's running for governor of California, told Bill Maher Friday night that things won't be that bad if newspapers die. We'll still have blogs!

"The exception you'll see, the Mumbai bombing, some of the best reporting was bloggers," says Newsom. Oh, Gavin! We think San Francisco's hunky god-mayor could have picked a far better example — like, say, that time a blogger in his own city scooped all of the local newspapers and television stations on the news of Newsom's impending fatherhood.
