作者:Rebecca MacKinnon


摘要:Recent research shows that journalists read blogs much more than the general public.This paper hypothesizes that journalists with specialized beats use blogs more heavily than general reporters. A survey of foreign correspondents who cover China indicates that blogs are especially useful to this group. This paper analyzes why blogs are so useful to China correspondents and calls for more comparative research so that the relationship between blogs and international news can be better understood.
