Totally agree with you, and it's also perhaps because we are far too subjective, opinionated and irregular. Mainstream media demands ratings and the like - we (as far as I know) are not interested in monetary benefits for our content and only discuss things which we find interesting.We are not an organisation, we are people expressing our points of view on matters we feel important.That I feel, is the main difference.http://blogpur.blogspot.com
super comment punch dilague frm keerthi eh?
venkat, you seem to share my thought. :)vatsan, punch ellam illappa !! subtle truth.jeevan, ada nambungappa.. thathuvaum illa .. punch dialogue um illa.
How about all bloggers receiving daily news from PTI?
Summaa "nach"nu irukku "Keerthi Murasu", summaa "nach"nu irukku :-)
I dont think blogs are meant to become main stream media. At the best, its opinionated. But thats fun too!. I would say, individual posts can qualify for being columns in MSM, but "see this: this is called compootar" kind of news won't do good.
keerthi,i was just commenting on the same to a friend of mine over the weekend. blogs are nothing more than personal columns at most and like others have expressed contains personal opinions that is always subjective in nature.besides, the mainstream media to a large extent still works on old journalistic principles and techniques. blogs cannot replace the mainstream media for it is primarily only the disseminator of news, not the creator of it like mainstream media.katz
raju, heh !! adha dhaane koodadhunnu sollren.thennavan, adhellam irukkattum. whats your opinion on this.deepak, :) Thats the max we can do.. "see this: this is called compootar" seems to be like my kid of news ;Piyengar, replace !! Chancey illa. Personal opinions will spoil the news. Blogs are only for surfers.. to get a different news or different view of a news.
Keerthi, one major difference is that bloggers are individuals. MSMs are corporates/syndicates/oraganizational forms. There will be a major difference to technology investments, news gathering, analysis, getting information tips and dissemination when you look at this aspect alone. Not to mention several other things like credibility (based on the history and culture of such establishments) and the fact that the common man is not going around carrying a laptop to get his news :-)
