Bad bloggers in France
By Tom Smith

Rioters are using blogs in France to promote disorder.

Police said gangs of youths, apparently roused by television images and summoned by Internet blogs, torched 51 cars in Paris Saturday night, including in attacks at the congested Place de la Republique near the trendy Marais district. Blazes were also set in 42 cities from Rennes, the capital of Brittany in the north, to Nice on the Cote d'Azur in the south. Details from each day's violence are not fully known until the next morning.

This is getting quite worrisome, though it still seems less important to the US MSM than Scootergate.
