CNN reports on Pew report

It is funny when CNN reports on something and can’t get a name right – how ironic that the report plays down the influence of blogs in relation to MSM.

“What political bloggers are doing is following stories and then amplifying the hell out of them,” said Dan Gimor, author of “We the Media.”

The results showed blogging functions alongside traditional media, said David Sifry, a software developer at the forum.

“It’s not about ‘either/or.’ It’s about ‘and,'” he said. “That’s why I still read ‘The New York Times.'”

That’s Dan Gillmor. Look up the book title on Google or something folks. Incidentally adds his thoughts on the report over at his new blog.

But I guess we are all allowed to make mistakes 😉
