Pew Study: Blogosphere More Balanced Than Talk Radio
May 25, 2010 at 4:29 AM (PT)
The latest study from the PEW RESEARCH CENTER's PROJECT FOR EXCELLENCE IN JOURNALISM reviewed the differences in news covered by new media vs. traditional media, and the study found more political balance in blogs online than in talk radio.
"Partisanship is strong, but unlike talk radio, the conversation here tends to draw a fairly even mix of conservative and liberal voices," the report said. "The Tea Party protests, SARAH PALIN and OBAMA's poll numbers, for example, all drew a wide mix of conservative and liberal commentary."
