Is all blogging about politics gossip?

I'm not asking that to be rhetorical, more that I haven't seen much that isn't. Even activist blogs stake their claim to truth not on principle but on "look on what bad thing so-and-so is doing."

If a good portion of blogging about politics is gossip, what can be done to change that? Should it be changed?

You know, being a media junkie, I read very few political blogs. Overall, I've found many amazing niche blogs, but I only have perhaps a handful, or less, political blogs I check regularly. I think it's great to see people blogging about the issues they care about, are passionate about, so politics, media, places, experiences, you name it - cool, I won't have time to read it all though, mostly just what pertains to my field of interest, or often only my professional field, but still: live and let live:-)
