Internet Conquering American Idol?

vivIsel (450550) writes "All sorts of media outlets have been a-buzzing by the saga of Sanjaya Malakar, an American Idol contestant who might just be headed for victory — but the thing is, he can't really sing. Thanks to the efforts of a lot of Indian-American patriots, some teenyboppers, and perhaps most importantly, the blogosphere and related entities, Fox's television behemoth (American Idol is the most-watched show in America) might be headed for an embarrassing moment. At least, that's what Dave Della Terza, the founder of votefortheworst.com is hoping for. The Times is covering the story, as is the Washington Post. The Boston Globe has its own cynical take on the affair."
