Media struggling with Blogs: UPI
UPI reports that traditional media is grappling with dwindling interest and growing criticism from bloggers.
“What blogging has created is a million eyes watching over the shoulders of journalists,” Matthew Felling, media director of the Center for Media and Public Affairs in Washington, tells UPI, and then goes on to note the rise on the uber-blogger like its 2003 again. “Oddly enough in the blogosphere, which is romanticized as this populist utopia, it too has created an elite class of opinion mongers”.
Somebody get this guy a copy of the Long-tail paper! but wait, we cant finish without insulting bloggers: “A blog by definition is created by someone who is an outsider,” Felling said.
That, surely, is the blogger’s strength.
