Bloggers keep the media honest, so wade in - Another article about how certain types of blogging may influence the media by offering first hand accounts of events that journalists can't possibly turn around as quick as bloggers can, e.g. what's just happened in New Orleans, the London bombings, etc. What I like best is how bloggers are referred to as
'a ready-made army of eye witnesses'.
I think that's a fair analogy, but for the vast majority of bloggers we are really talking about first hand reports of the humdrum of day-to-day life - something that most journalists stay well clear of, mostly for commercial and perhaps career-related reasons. Blogging, amongst many other things, to me anyway, fills a colossal gap where journalist fear to tread. Perhaps one day soon we will see the mundane become mainstream and about time to!
