The Tennessean has something that I think more papers should go to. Comments section and /or polls on all stories, I love it. If papers had comments on all stories and opinion pieces a few more papers might realize that the left is a smaller section of their readership than they think. If the left steps up and jumps on a issue, making them comment and tell why they think the way they do and point to fact and figures instead of emotional pleas the weakness of their argument will show.
I think papers going down this road will be one of the only things that will help them compete with blogs at a time when blogs are starting to eat the MSMs lunch.
