Political blogging

Given Hazel Blears' attack on political bloggers, I thought I would highlight a fascinating piece on political blogs from Texas A&M University (I know it's an odd place to find this information, but my innovation team has flown out there yesterday and I was looking for various bits of information when I came across this story).

I wonder what the Welsh blogosphere thinks of the differing views of contributors to the article.

"Blogging can improve your communication, writing and analytical skills, as well as provide a platform for your opinion."


"Blogs can influence the voting process by getting more people interested in and enthused about the political process"


"I don't think [political blogs] have any impact. Partisans gravitate to blogs expressing their ideology and partisanship. There is only crystallization of opinions, as there is no exchange of opinions."

"The downside of blogging in general is that many people on the Internet contribute to the downward spiral of political discourse in America by spreading rumors, innuendo and untruths and by showing little or no respect for their opponents".
