New survey on the influence of blogs released

Originally posted Saturday, September 02, 2006There has been released a new survey about American adults use of blogs to get news. Here are some interesting quotes from KnoxNews explaining some of the findings in the survey:

"Look at the political campaign for U.S. Senate in Connecticut. The blogosphere had a pretty clear effect on the outcome of the vote. And political bloggers impacted both politicians in the race, affecting what they talked about during the campaign."
