Blogs have not displaced media

Weblogs, or blogs, may be a powerful new force in US politics but they have not displaced traditional media in terms of information and influence. This is according to a study conducted during the 2004 US presidential campaign. The study released Monday in New York found political blogs -- online opinion and information sites -- played a similar, but not greater role, as did the mainstream media and the candidates campaigns. The study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project dispels the notion that blogs are replacing traditional media as the public's primary source of information.
