Rubel’s comments include…
What I glean from this study is that the majority of bloggers generally amplify news through pointers and commentary to information others might not see. They’re not conducting real thorough reporting.
It’s clear that the term “blogger” has two distinct meanings.
a) Blogger = a news ‘journalist’ that uses an informal reporting style and offers personal commentary.
b) Blogger = anyone that publishes thoughts and commentary to a web site, on a regular basis, using a tool such as Blogger or Typepad.
