ABSTRACT
The article presents mass media research on the effect of blogs on political journalism presented by major mass media news organizations. Content analysis on the use of blogs as quoted sources by newspapers and television news broadcasters in the U.S. is offered. It was found that so-called traditional news media have frequently cited blogs as sources, but that they were more likely to cite them as sources of opinions rather than as sources of facts. It was also found that blogs on political topics were far more likely to cite reports from traditional news media than was the reverse.
