Even in the non-English speaking world, Blogs are at the front of breaking news
Weblog Beats Wires in Reporting Bolivia President’s Resignation | Narco News
At 1:44 p.m. today, the weblog BigLeftOutside.com reported “Bolivian President Will Resign Today.”
Agence France Press confirmed the story eleven minutes later at 1:55 p.m., the rest of the Spanish language media followed suit, but it took the English-language press almost four hours to state the news definitively.
Once again, blogs and bloggers beat, inform, provide context for, and change, the way that the Commercial Media reports the news.
