The Toronto Star seems to think that Canadian blogs aren’t really making a difference in the Canadian election campaign. Maybe some of my Canadian readers might think differently?
Certainly this comment is interesting:
“True, there was the storm about the Liberal attack ads that was heightened by bloggers who parodied the spots. But the mainstream media (MSM) were all over that disaster right from the beginning.”
and maybe if we take the premise that blogs haven’t had a huge impact in the Canadian elections as being true, this statement is the reason why: unlike the US MSM, the Canadian MSM may be more objective perhaps?
