Where Bloggers Get Their Power

What gives bloggers their power is not their access to information but their ability to put it on the public agenda.
Philip Meyer makes a point in his article: Closely watched media humbled -- that discusses how today journalism is assuming a new form because we now have "innumerable sources of information and ideas all trying to be heard." Meyer states that today "News is less a lecture now and more of a seminar." Old mainstream media, he says, has to realize that news today is a different kind of a game and adapt themselves to this new reality.
