2004 Paper on American J-blogs – McCoy Roth

August 19, 2006

Just found an American paper, “How Journalists See the Blogosphere” by Marci McCoy Roth (U Penn) while trying to find an index in Canada that could list journalistic blogs.  Theoretical framework is public sphere empowerment / Habermas discussion;  shares results of survey conducted of American journalists regarding what blogs they read; sent 3800 – 4000 emails and received 57 responses; identifies top blogs read by American journalists.  This is a different study than the U Chicago study that focussed on blog reading habits of American media elites.
