Dogwalk Musings: Bloggers Rule

RE: Dogwalk’s post about today’s Leadership Coeur d’Alene Media Day

What was of more interest to me, however, was what I learned by sitting in on two preceding sessions. It told me a lot about why we get such lousy news coverage from both the print and broadcast media. Mostly its the bottom line. We have been suffering locally by the cutbacks made by the Spokane based Spokesman Review. A speaker from the Coeur d’Alene Press made it clear there was no intention of picking up the resulting lack of in depth reporting. Their mission, basically, is to be all things to all readers. Of course without talented staff that’s pretty hard to do/Dogwalk Musings. More here

Question: How do you think the North Idaho blogosphere fits into the grand scheme of media coverage?
