State Of The Blogosphere


[Media Source*]

(Technorati Weblog) As the chart above [(image below)] shows, the most influential media sites on the web are still well-funded mainstream media sites, like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and CNN. However, a lot of bloggers are achieving a significant amount of attention and influence. Blogs like bOingbOing, Daily Kos, and Instapundit are highly influential, especially among technology and political thought leaders, and sites like Gizmodo and Engadget are seeing as much influence as mainstream media sites like the LA Times.

Although this may come as disappointing news to some bloggers (who have a rather loathing attitude towards all media types) many of them should be encouraged by this report as it displays that bloggers are increasing their influence throughout the public arena.



Although many bloggers on the "A-List" (like Instapundit, Daily Kos, etc.) will probably dominate the top blog spots in the future, their in roads into the media world have helped introduce views that might have never been heard due towards media bias on both sides of the spectrum.

One interesting thing about the analysis of this report is that although news services like the Wall Street Journal did poorly, (mainly because they have been a subscription service only outlet) other media news organizations such as the New York Times (considered liberal by some) have been doing fairly well despite having subscriptions to their services.
