Oridinarily, I like to stay clear of politics here ...

... but Roger K. Miller -- a frequent Inquirer reviewer -- sends me a link to a piece in the Wisconsin State Journal about poliblogs that's worth a look. What I found particularly noteworthy:

Two surveys last year by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that about one in 20 adults nationwide reported creating a blog and about one in six are blog readers.
Studies by the Pew project also debunk a major criticism of bloggers and the Internet in general - that people use the Web to seek out their preferred brand of politics and shut out opposing arguments. In fact, wired Americans get more points of view from both sides of the political spectrum, a 2004 study found.

  1. That's interesting and reflects my own reading experience. I often follow links to get both sides of a political story. I figure between the two political extremes, I might get a balanced view.
