BLOG: The Big Four?

Much commentary lately on Hugh Hewitt's designation of Instapundit, Andrew Sullivan, Mickey Kaus, and The Volokh Conspiracy as the "Big Four" blogs that drive news cycles. I have to disagree with his selection on one point; I don't tend to think of the Volokh site as one of the real news-cycle-driving sites like Sullivan, Instapundit, Kaus and Josh Marshall (Hewitt cites Marshall, but as the lone liberal in the group and a Big Media guy in his own right, via his connection with The Washington Monthly, Marshall has proven his ability to set news agendas). Maybe it's just me, but the Volokh site is more reflective, less apt to pile onto hot stories just to spread news on them, and more lawyerly; I go there for analysis, not news.
