MSN Hiring Bloggers, Bloggers Not Impressed

Source Title:
MSN Recruiting Paid Bloggers
Story Text:

Mediapost report that MSN are hiring bloggers for a bunch of categories including tech, style, music and sports. Although i've seen a few posts about this, it's a good summary of opinion among some of the more influential bloggers...

I can't picture MS being able to pull this off, though i do wish them luck. Like Google, they just don't seem to "get" the blog thing, and even if they hired writers that do, im guessing there would be a whole stack of prohibitive rules they'd have to follow, effectively neutering them from the outset...
