Blogging Rocks The News

Rita Pushes Blogs, Rich Maps to Forefront - Yahoo! News:

"One of the benefits to blogs is that they tend to be more personal, they tend to provide more the emotional feel of an event,' said Dwight Silverman, the Chronicle's interactive journalism editor. 'In traditional reporting you put on your poker face and do your writing. ... It's not supposed to be the writer's emotions."

I've noticed blogs being attributed or referenced more and more often on the broadcast news as well. Looks like blogging is really taking over -- what, I'm not sure. People are using words again. They're speaking out, making waves, hanging out (sometiimes, way out). Everybody can publish. Does that mean we'll be heard? Let's find out together, shall we?
