Decisions about what to exclude

July 3, 2006

On the master spreadsheet I’ve kept a 3rd tab for those blogs that still fall outside the parameters of our study but are interesting in terms of seeing what’s happening. Those will include:

  • blogs by people who work in news media but who were not considered in Weaver & Wilhoit’s journalism study (tech, recording, camera, sound people); 
  • blogs by people rumoured to be journalists rumoured to work for this publication or that publication.  There are enough blogs to track that are explitly positioned by their authors and media mastheads as j-blogs right now without sleuthing.
  • blogs that fall into the parameters but had already become inactive or almost inactive by the time our study started [no 2006 postings, or only a couple since then]
