Define Stealth, Please

Putz links to an article by Associated Press (Help me out, Putz. Is this the same AP that's dependent on terrorists? I'm so confused!) which reports that

[Fred Thompson] had experimented with blogging, posting two- and three-sentence thoughts on the Web site for ABC News Radio, for whom he is a host and commentator.


Now his opinion columns are appearing on, the Pajamas Media blog, National Review Online and his own blog, The Fred Thompson Report. Several other conservative Web sites have picked up the commentaries.

Putz calls this media blitz "stealth" -- which MW helpfully defines as "the act or action of proceeding furtively, secretly, or imperceptibly."

Eh. Wingers, Putz included, still haven't figured out if blogs are a force to be reckoned with -- witness the triumphant mewling about the Victory Caucus or the incredible assertion that Time cares what Don Surber thinks -- or a sub rosa change agent. Whatever they ultimately decide, it seems absurd to pretend that ABC News Radio, NRO, or even RedState aren't widely read.

In a related note, does Peggy Noonan know that she's a Pajamas Media commentator?
