Blogger Credibility

Tuesday, September 21, 2004

I have no doubt that within the next few years more people will turn to their Favorites folder for news than television. TV, which has bested newspapers for faster access to the most updated news has been dethroned by the Internet. Cyberspace literally brings you the latest news instantly; many times before it happens. Sites like Drudge Report is one prime example and the ever-growing blogosphere of commentators has replaced the inaudible four panel split screen called by a fruitless moderator.

As for factual substance, the Internet is notorious for producing the faux variety but bloggers - as Power Line points out - have become so keen that the smallest error is pointed out and exploited throughout the blogroll. Blogging for readership is competitive business and no respectable blogger would want to risk putting out false reports.
