Blogging kills?

Rick MacArthur, head of Harper's Magazine, is down on blogging and bloggers
I do think blogging is really bad for writers. Ask Andrew Sullivan. He almost had a breakdown. You can see the quality of bloggers' writing decline. We hired Walter Kirn to be our every-other-month columnist. We're sending him to the Republican National Convention but don't want him to blog because we don't want to dilute what he's doing for the print magazine.
I lean to the other philosophy. If you have the idea and the opportunity, why leave it unwritten?  The well fills up again, is my experience.
