BLOGOSPHERE'S BIG YEAR. Hugh Hewitt points to an article
in World Magazine
entitled "Year of the Blog,"
providing some discussion of this important and fast-growing medium. Old Media dominance has already been eroded by the top bloggers. (Thanks in no small part to many recent failures of Old Media: CNN's admission that it did not report about many of the goings-on in the Middle East in order to protect its contacts in the region; the complete lack of coverage given to the Swift Boat Vets' campaign; Rathergate; CBS' botched plan to air an erroneous, last-minute story about missing munitions in Iraq, etc.)
I applaud World
for taking the blogosphere seriously.
