Election Year 2004 = The Year of the Weblog.

The mainstream press is starting to take notice of the power weblogs are having on the presidential election cycle.  Look for this momentum to carry well beyond November 2004.

“A powerful new networking tool for the politically plugged-in and hangers-on, the constant online chatter broadens campaign discourse and accelerates the news cycle.

Such journals, known as blogs, may not be doing much to sway undecided voters, but analysts say they strongly impact the media, campaign consultants and activists.”
